At some point, you’re going to get tired of living the way you do… so I want to start a new “series” of blog posts. So people can see how I live, how cheap it is to live here, and because these are easy posts while I work on BeAForeigner.com. 😊
I usually order groceries once or twice a week to be delivered. This week I wanted hamburgers and it’s that time of the month so lots of junk food 😣. I don’t normally buy this stuff!
The delicious hamburger I made…#proud 🥳

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!
