This is episode number 71. Hi, my name is Elise Robinson am a black woman that lives in Mexico. And why am I in Mexico, my mother passed away from blood cancer in 2016 in November, and so I didn’t have anything left. I quit my whole life to help take care of my family and my mother. And so I decided to, you know, go live somewhere else. If I didn’t like it, I could always come back right. And so, I decided on going to Mexico City, Mexico, had never been to Mexico even though I lived on the border twice. You guys hear about the cartel and you know, they snatching folks and everything else. In Mexico City is one of the largest cities on Earth. So it’s a big city.

And last night I had a seizure. It’s been a long time since I’ve had a seizure.

And so I guess

if December

is when the auras started an aura when you have epilepsy is basically a warning that you’re going to have one eventually. You don’t know when but you’re going to have one. So um, I’ve been having them for weeks now, I guess a month at this point. So and that’s right around the time that the corona virus really started popping off was like December. So

I’ve been kind of stressed and ever since I guess

trying to figure out what the hell’s going on prepare, worried about my family, my friends

myself, so

so yeah

⛱️ VisaHQ - Help in obtaining your visa if needed

I don’t want to go too deep in and maybe I’ll talk about on different podcasts but I’m going to go see a pulmonologist hopefully on Wednesday because my ass I’ve been having asthma attack like almost every day but I’ve been taking my allergy pills I didn’t really want to start on allergy pills because I didn’t think it was that bad and I was going to get better but I never did so

I haven’t had asthma attacks and

stuff and taken out because though, but

I’m good had this point I suppose. I need to keep the stress down. I really ain’t been sleeping. I ate nothing I’m about to grab. I’m about to eat me something I ate since yesterday. Technically. So in my little bony ass needs to eat everything in sight, so um


🎖️ Allianz - Don’t let a canceled flight, stress you out…get travel insurance.

But updates on Corona virus. So last night was the first death a 55 year old man here. I haven’t I haven’t checked the news this morning since I’ve been out and about. But I didn’t see anything last night and super early this morning when I woke up about it. So I don’t know what’s going on in mainstream media. And the funny part, I guess if is if you want to say it’s funny is that I got notification through this app called rappy is the delivery app, it’ll deliver you whatever you want. And so so around nine o’clock last night, I got a screenshot of it, because I was just like in shock and it’s for history purposes. See it You know, I mean, all this is gonna go down in history books. So I mean, there’s that’s a piece of history right there at this point.

So yeah, notification through the delivery app

that the first man died here. Supposedly there’s only 46 cases. I don’t know how true that is. But it seems like all the people that are spreading the disease are not even Asian. They’re white. So I don’t know what that’s about.

Supposedly, there was a recent case that I read about.

🛴 Viator - Reserve your tour now and pay later

The other day, it was a woman. She was vacationing in Spain. So my guess is that she’s white, because you know, the so called real Mexicans do not vacation in Spain. Those are the white ones. So she came back with the disease and she’s probably spreading it and that was in clinic. So, Cancun is about four hours here by bus for me. So it’s coming. It’s coming. It’s coming.

I don’t know what else to say on that.

I wish Mexico will close the borders at this point.

People are still vacationing here flying in, and especially in Mexico City where they have flights from Asia, and pretty much every major city in Europe. We need to close the borders. I’m seeing pictures of people, you know, living it up and can’t come in and it’s just fucking crazy at this point. So I don’t know, I don’t know what Mexico is going to do. They claim 50% of the economy and Mexico is tourism. I know they don’t want to give it up but they don’t have to do something to protect their citizens at this point. So so yeah I appreciate the United States closing some you know, close and awesome the flights from


🗿 Groupon - Have used this web site for YEARS to find all kinds of deals in multiple cities all over the world.

and Asia


I’m tired. I even sleep in like a thank straight. So I know Guatemala has closed their borders, I believe believes has closed there’s so I mean, I guess at this point, they’re not really a threat.

I don’t know what to say.

But right. I’m here in Mexico, only down with my peeps. So I don’t think I’m going to go back to the States. I went to the store today and grabbed some medicine for my asthma. I just thought to myself, I can’t go back home because I mean, All my money would be depleted. Like, like that.

I can’t get any deliveries anymore I tried this morning just to see can’t get anything so I’m going to have to go out in the stores if I need being which I don’t plan to but everything is business as usual here still businesses are still open, walked around Today’s a holiday those that don’t know how much is going to be open.

Without a plan, Elyse Y. Robinson moved to México City after her mother passed away from blood cancer on November 11, 2016. She never heard of México City nor even visited México before. She just knew she had to escape America to mourn. She had quit her whole life to help her family anyway. She had nothing more to lose. She is going into her fourth year in México and she is there to stay!
