My First Mexican Festival

June 04, 2017


Yes, yes I know I should have been at a festival but I’m going now! I found a free walking tour on Meetup.com and joined a few friendly people. I had a lot of fun. The festival had food, music, performances, and merchants selling handcrafted items. The festival was called “Son para Milo”. I just walked around and explored the festival. I bought my sister a beautiful necklace and got me some all natural toothpaste.

I was offered different moles, drinks, and sweets. I tasted sorbete for the first time in horchata flavor and was very delicious. I was shocked to find marijuana concoctions! I also saw fried crickets. I wasn’t ready to try them just yet. I stayed for about an hour as I got lost from the group and took the bus back home. The bus ride had about 10 stops and cost me 4 pesos.

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!
