Hey, my name is Lisa Robinson and I am a black American woman that lives in Mexico. Why did I live in Mexico because my mother passed away from blood cancer in November 2016. So I quit my whole life in order to take care of my mother and help out my family. And so since I had nothing left, I decided to go explore the world. And I landed in Mexico, Mexico City in particular.

0:28
I fell in love with Mexico City.

0:30
I called my father up about a month and a half there and told him I was never coming back.

0:38
And the rest is history.

2:05
And,

2:07
um, yeah, this this, let’s get into it. So I apologize. I’ve been gone. The last video was posted July 30. I’m alive. I didn’t catch COVID again. It’s just I number one feel like doing anything. Um I was ready to get the hell up out of Mexico with their lockdowns and everything else as that’s going on. With COVID I was ready to see my family cuz fights has started back and they were cheaper now. And yeah, so I’ve actually spent two months in the States. So there was nothing going on. And shit but lay around, eat, get fat. Talk to my family, go visit people. That’s all it is.

🤓 edX - Take free online courses 24/7/365

3:02
It is what it is. And I would have posted

3:05
when I came back to Mexico a month ago. But a hurricane. I caught a cold I had a two day cold. I don’t know what that was about. I’m still kind of coughing a little bit as you can see, but I mean, my lungs ain’t really hurting or nothing. I have mucus and shit. I thought it was COVID at one point, and I’ll get into that that story a little bit later. But, um, and then we had a tropical storm again, and it was just a mess. And then YouTube blocked me

3:41
because

3:44
I have

3:46
cultural videos on my YouTube channel. That’s what I’m calling them because it is cultural. I mean, Mexico has had bullfighting since

Honey - Find coupons and great deals whenever you shop online

3:55
forever.

3:57
And there’s all kinds of crazy shit on YouTube. Like somebody sent me a video of somebody being raped like, but yet, Mexican bullfighting is brutal and they don’t deserve to be on there when it’s cultural. So that is my second strike on YouTube. So I think if I get a third one like my channels, poof. So I don’t know if I should make another one and kind of mirror it and put all my shit on that one. But

4:25
yeah, they gave me four bullfighting

4:26
videos. I got to go on there and delete them. I really do. Oh, yeah. So that’s, that’s bad. Um, let me see what else I wanted to talk about, oh, we can get into the travel portion of going back to the States. So if you watch my other COVID videos, but there were no flights. There was no flights or if there were flights was a three day trip to get back and probably half of those airplanes are going to be

🛸 Airbnb - Get $40 off a home booking of $75 or more and $15 off an experience of $50 or more

5:05
canceled.

5:08
Um,

5:09
so I have

5:11
three options at the moment to get back to the States. I could take a four hour bus ride to Cancun. And there’s plenty of flights going in and out of Cancun, although I’ve heard from people saying that they’ve been canceled too. So I don’t really know what’s going on with with that. Um, I didn’t want to take a four hour bus ride during cobit time on a bunch of people I don’t know none about.

5:36
And I surely said they want to be on a flight

🎠 Skiplagged - Exposing loopholes in airfare pricing to save you money

5:38
with a bunch of fucking Americans that don’t want to wear masks, because Mexicans are pretty compliance. Okay, honestly, nobody, oh, no airplane in the airport without a mask all probably because you’ll be fine. And all this other kind of stuff.

5:51
So, um,

5:54
yeah. Or I could go to Mexico City, which I thought about going, I actually have booked a flight.

6:01
Actually, I think I booked two flights,

6:03
but one was canceled. And other one, I just, I just forfeited it. Because I just, I didn’t want to go to Mexico City. After believing I had COVID with my lungs, I was asymptomatic until I was they went to the hospital and it was like, X ray is fucked. I can breathe, I felt like one of my lungs stuck on my, on the side. Um, so I ended up at the hospital getting a shot in my ass but

6:32
and Mexico City is

6:35
one of the highest places on

6:36
earth, I think they might be

6:38
they might be like top 10 maybe top 20

6:41
it pretty high.

6:43
pretty hot here. Um,

6:47
so I don’t know

6:47
if I was gonna be able to breathe in Mexico City or not. So I didn’t want to take that chance. So I did. My first flight was canceled to Mexico City. And then I ended up booking another one on a whole different airline. And I said fuck it. I’m not I’m not going. So my last option, which is what I did is to fly through Monday, which is

⛱️ VisaHQ - Help in obtaining your visa if needed

7:11
it’s a major city in Mexico.

7:15
And so,

7:18
um,

7:20
but, uh, going there at eight hour

7:25
layover,

7:26
so I had to get a hotel because

7:28
I wasn’t sitting in the airport for eight hours. Um, stay at the Holiday Inn there is very nice. It’s very nice. It’s clean, decent.

🛴 Viator - Reserve your tour now and pay later

7:38
And then I went back

7:40
after a nap, got something to eat chilled,

7:43
and got on an airplane to go home.

7:47
But, like I said before, that my flight was canceled, so I ended up not leaving on the day I was supposed to leave left on I think it was like three or four days later. And then coming back, they had me leaving at 10 o’clock at night,

8:03
getting to

8:04
Monterey at like midnight

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

8:09
and get to the hotel till one

8:11
o’clock because I had my luggage you know, I gotta go pick up my luggage or whatever. And that was a 15 hour layover.

8:19
My flight didn’t leave until three o’clock

8:21
the next day.

8:24
So um I didn’t walk through the house until like six o’clock 630

8:30
in the evening

8:32
just wild and ridiculous um,

Booking.com - Get 20% off hotels

8:34
but for when I hear from somebody they said Mexico City during the flight has been canceled and on air too so it’s it’s a crapshoot. I honestly don’t know who’s out here vacationing who’s taken flights also leaves your ship

8:48
because you could potentially get stuck

8:50
somewhere for hours for potentially days

8:53
okay

8:56
that’s one reason why I stayed in the states for two months because I was trying to see if there was a better way to come back united keep playing with the flights American Airlines keep playing with the flights but no one is flying so they have no reason to

9:10
to have flights right

9:13
um

9:16
so yeah, that’s that

9:18
I’m back to my cold so I had kind of a two day cold because I was like I had a I’m pretty sure I had a fever on Friday. For whatever reason I came get a thermometer

9:28
to work at all and this bitch I don’t know if it’s because of the

9:30
the humidity the weather.

9:32
I don’t know what it is biding by like three thermometers and they don’t fucking work. So, um, I just gave up on the thermometers. But I was having flashes and I felt hot.

9:42
I just didn’t feel good on Friday.

9:45
So I was like moving around doing stuff that I need to do Saturday is when the shit really kicked in. Um,

💎 Fiverr.com - Need a website? fiverr | Need a voice over? fiverr | Need a logo? fiverr | Get 20% off your first order

9:52
I slept the whole day on Saturday. I was literally

9:54
knocked out all day on Saturday.

9:57
Only got up to go to the bathroom and to eat

10:01
And then Sunday, I felt better. I got up

10:04
and moved around. I was able to do stuff. Monday, I was fine. And you know, my sisters all told me you need to go get a COVID check. You don’t know if you got it or not. I’m like, Well, I’m starting

10:14
to feel better. I don’t think I totally but I went anyway,

📆 TrustedHousesitters - Travel like a local for less. Exchange watching someone’s house for FREE accommodation.

10:18
because my sister would know better. She’s on the frontlines. She’s an essential health care worker. So

10:24
I tried to go get a COVID test.

10:26
And they told me what 6000 pesos so that’s

10:29
about

10:34
that’s about $350 give or take.

10:39
So I’m

10:45
the cheapest I found was about 3700 pesos I think it was and that’s like, $150 give or take.

10:52
I went to the emergency room. They were like,

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

10:54
yeah, nah, we we got no, we got no, um, we’re gonna call the tests for you. You know, you know, you got all the symptoms, cough. Chest was hurt. And I had body aches, mucus, fever at one point.

11:13
Um,

11:15
so I ended up leaving,

11:16
and not not paying nothing. Um, my Mexican family got me a test. But don’t don’t tell them that I never went and got the test. Because I mean, I think it was necessary. 40 million poking me up my damn nose. And I’m better. After two days. She went in two days. It was like one day,

11:37
one day I was sick. Um,

11:41
yeah, so don’t don’t tell him I didn’t get the test.

11:46
Um,

🔥 Raise - Get $5 and the best place for discounted gift cards

11:49
but yeah, they hooked me up with a free test. I guess there’s some kind of way to get a free test. I called the Mexican number for COVID or whatever.

11:58
And

12:00
I guess at one point, they was coming to people’s houses. They called me a couple of days later, I was like, do you still are you like, Do you still think you have and I was like, No, I’m better now.

12:12
So

12:14
I don’t know if they would have came out gave me a test that directed me to a place where I can get

12:17
a test. But just know Mexico ain’t testing. I don’t know where these numbers coming from. But I ain’t got a test yet. He especially the first time when I was I did Mir was definitely eel. I sure as hell didn’t get tested. So I will never be counted, I will never be counted.

12:38
Um,

12:40
so that leads me into my next discussion of people coming back and forth to Mexico on trips, because Mexico is I think the only place this at this time. Costa Rica is opening up Sunday on the first so and they’re not having testing. So Americans and Canadians and whoever else can get to Costa Rica will flock there and their numbers will go up and people will continue dying. They’re just like here in Mexico. It is very rampant here in Mexico. Okay, yeah, I think this shit is a fucking joke. But um, I’ve heard of people coming to Mexico and getting sick and going back to the saints. And y’all just really not understanding that people are asymptomatic out here. I was asymptomatic. I swear to God, I gave it to my damn neighbor and in his daddy. I was asymptomatic. I have heard stories from my sister, and a whole bunch of other people that work in health care that people are coming in for surgery. And they’re testing positive for coli and they don’t even know they have it. There’s people coming in for COVID and they’re taking x rays of their chest, and their chest is just fucked. And they’re walking around is fine. Just like I was. I mean, I was out here cooking cleaning. I was going outside

14:00
until I wasn’t

14:03
so um

14:06
yeah, you guys are bringing the ship back to your parents and your grandparents

🚗 Uber - Try Uber with a free ride!

14:09
like getting

14:11
and I don’t know what people can say that Mexico feels safer. What the fuck was that mean? Just because they handed out hand sanitizer and enforcement mass and checking your little temperature at the door and Oh, me shit. Y’all not understanding that Mexico does not have any safety nets. There is no unemployment. There is no

14:32
um, as far

14:35
as I know, I know there’s food kitchens, because why would they be passing out bags of food if there was a food kitchen unless they just want people to stay home?

14:45
You know what I’m saying? But they was literally out

14:48
passing out like hand sanitizer, masks and food and like little care packages.

14:55
And so and shit for people.

14:59
So my thinking Is there no food kitchen where people be lining it like there is in the States? Okay.

15:05
Um,

15:08
healthcare is free here, but it’s like, you know,

15:13
the public health care,

15:15
which is shit.

15:16
You don’t want to get sick here,

15:18
because I’ve heard supposedly that this shit is overflowing. I have not seen it overflowing every time I’ve been to the hospital. I mean, I’ve never been to the back to where it looked like it was overflowing so but they have stopped people from just walking in the hospital. I do know that because I’ve been on a couple of times.

15:39
I’m

15:42
at one point, it was so bad that you can even get an ambulance. Okay, okay, so they’re going back up to death. So going back up,

15:52
I just read one where

🦅 One Drone - Create amazing vacation videos with a new drone

15:54
the youngest person on that day. In my city

15:58
alone, were nine talking about

16:00
Mexico City, which is one of the largest cities on Earth.

16:03
Um,

16:06
six people died in one day, and the youngest person was 24 years old.

16:11
Okay,

16:12
so like I said in my other videos, Mexico is very, very unhealthy

🎁 Etsy - Give one-of-a-kind gifts to everyone on your list

16:17
country. So I

16:18
know the numbers is gonna be bad. Because healthy people walking around here when diagnosed diabetes, high blood pressure and whatever else. They widened all outside. And they said that is a huge risk factor.

16:31
So I knew it was gonna be bad.

16:35
I just didn’t know I was gonna be this bad.

16:38
So to add to add on to that Mexico was number four with the deaths.

16:43
Okay, number four,

16:44
only reason why number a Mexico is not number three anymore because they weren’t number three, they were number three is because India, which is has the largest population on Earth. Um, they overtook them with a desk, which is to be expected, right, which is to be expanding.

17:03
But

🗺️ Lonely Planet - Buy three books about different countries for the price of two

17:05
Mexico was number four.

17:08
Understand that Mexico needs people to come otherwise people won’t be home because there are no safety nets. But it’s not safe. It’s just not safe. It’s not. It’s not safe for the Mexican people. It’s not safe for whoever we’re bringing as here. There was a girl, Nebraska. She was here for for seven days, and she started getting sick. I don’t know she had COVID. Yeah, I think this shit is a joke. It’s really nice. Um, another reason why I stay so long in the states is because my Mexican family told me that a whole bunch of people in my building alone had it. And so I stayed away. I don’t blame him moccasin cash to shit again. I don’t want to shoot again. Okay,

18:06
so

18:10
yeah, I’ll keep coming up. Yeah, he come in. Um, add on to that. Let me give y’all the numbers,

18:17
the numbers that

18:19
Mexico has said is up to eight times higher than what they’re saying it is. Because

18:25
Ain’t nobody testing. Okay.

💻 HP - Get yourself a brand new computer today

18:28
Trump is correct. When he say that the numbers is very high. And I say it’s because they test and it’s true. It’s very true. America and Mexico could be number one, we don’t know. Because they not testing like that.

18:41
So,

18:43
you know, but, um, so far Mexico. This is this is as of today said, Well, I guess it’s yesterday since yesterday. They don’t have today’s number, but since yesterday, 912,811 cases have been combined.

18:59
Okay.

19:03
90,773

19:05
deaths. So we’re almost at 100,000. And I’m expecting that to be at 100,000 by the end of the month. So especially since numbers and deaths are going up drastically. Um, 668,667 having cooperator.

19:23
So I guess that’s a good thing.

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

19:26
Again, I’ll never be included in those numbers because I couldn’t

19:28
do the test. And what

19:32
else was I going to say? Um, but

19:45
I guess that’s enough for the COVID News. Um, I have had to get to the hidden dehumidifiers because the humidity here has been ridiculous. It was not like this last year. I don’t know. What’s going on in this year COVID 2020. But a lot of crazy shit is going on, as y’all can see. So um yeah, cuz the humidity is affecting my loans, like really bad, really, really bad. So I just got another one today. If I had known that one would have done it, I would have just went on ahead and guide one of the big ones to one all day, because I don’t know how many of these little ones he is. But when I first got my first one, I emptied it at three day mark.

20:36
Three days it took for it to fill up.

20:39
Um, this last time I only took one day. But a storm did come through so I guess it was to be expected.

20:49
Um,

❄️ AXA Travel Insurance - Every great trip begins with a great insurance

20:53
but yeah, I think that’s all I got for y’all to talk about. Um, yeah, I have I have recorded another video. But that was last weekend.

21:05
And

21:07
YouTube told me I can upload it. So

21:11
I want to do a fresh, fresh brand new video beyond the gossip data stuff. But at this point,

21:23
um

21:26
I don’t know how much longer I want

21:28
to be in Mexico.

21:32
Number one, I need to get the hell about this apartment.

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

21:36
But to submit it because I can probably find a better spot. But number two, Mexico was not handling this shit very well. People were still coming back and forth in the middle of fucking May, June, July when people were just dropping like, like flies. And it’s just, it’s just sickening. How Mexico has been with this shit. I don’t give a fuck about nobody.

22:00
I’m not saying

22:04
I want to leave Mexico completely. I will come back. I will come back. I probably want to spend some time more time with my family in Houston.

22:17
And I’ve also asked me another adventure. So

22:21
let me find something else to do. I’m getting

22:23
I’m getting restless, real restless. Um COVID head head I probably would be out exploring made more I supposed to go check out

23:05
um

23:08
I don’t know. I just want I didn’t want to go back to the States because my family is there. And I’d rather be there where I rather be with the devil I know than when I don’t know what’s nice, right? And if I’m gonna do another adventure, I’ve been looking at master’s degrees programs.

23:29
One second. My bursary you can see it

23:55
pologize I thought I was gonna finish up before he got here but it’s my groceries. Um So yeah, I’m thinking about finishing up my master’s degree problem and last year I applied to some programs and got into a university UK for entrepreneurship program to help me with be a foreigner they didn’t want to give me a full scholarship so fuck

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 is going into her fourth year in México and she is there to stay!
