About Me

UPDATE

OCTOBER 30TH I AM RATING ALL MAIL RECEIVED, I PROMISE I WILL NOT LEAVE ANYONE OUT. IF YOU NEVER RECEIVED RATING FROM ME, DROP ME A MESSAGE SO I CAN FIND THE SWAP AND DO SO.

I AM ALSO REVIEWING MY POOR RATING TO SEE IF THIS CAN BE TURNED AROUND.**

FEB 2017 I HAVE LIVER FAILURE AND HAVE BEEN IN n OUT OF THE HOSPITAL SINCE DECEMBER. I HAVE NOW RATED ALL THE SWAPS I HAVE RECEIVED AND SENT OUT THE LAST ONES I JOINED.

SORRY FOR THE INCONVENIENCES.

ELENA

¡HOLA!

My name is Elena, Im Mexican, 29 years old and love meeting people, other countries and other cultures. Im so excited to join Swap-bot, hope to do some amazing swaps and create great memories.

My native language is Spanish but I speak English and Portuguese as well.

I learned about this website from another site called The bucketlist and found it interesting that people wanted to do swaps as a life goal so once I read it all I knew I had to join!

I AM OBSESSED WITH ELEPHANTS.

I have 2 elephant tattoos and about 150 elephant figurines that I've been collecting for years from anywhere in the world and any material, from wood, wire, crystal, paper, fabric, etc.

I have never been married and I have no kids. I also have no pets; unfortunately I work long hours so it doesnt seem fair for pets to be home alone :( but I would love to adopt a dog one day.

About MAIL

(USA) I have noticed it takes around 4-5 weeks to receive mail from Mexico so please be patient.

(Rest of the world) I have noticed it takes around 6-8 weeks to receive mail from Mexico so please be patient.

I have no problem re sending if needed, so let me know if more than a month has passed and you havent received anything.

Thank you for your patience!

Favorite Movies

The Godfather (all of them) the bucketlist, Last Vegas,Danny the dog, the shining, Psychosis, Rosemary's baby, Vertigo, and many more

Favorite Television

Saturday Night Live, The tonight show (Jimmy Fallon), How to get away with murder, Greys anatomy, Criminal Minds, Bob's burgers, Family Guy, the Simpsons, etc

Favorite Books

Great expectartions (Dickens) . Banana Yoshimoto, Jose Saramago. Latin american writers (Jose Agustin, Enrique Serna, Jorge Iibarguengoitia, etc)

Likes & Dislikes

I LOVE FOOD

I love all fruits & vegetables with the exceptions of : Papaya and Turnip

Coming from Mexico, I love spicy food!

I have no allergies which makes me very happy since I can eat anything. I am not afraid of trying anything at all, I have eaten a lot of different things, chicken, beef, pork, rabbit, moose, all kinds of seafood (my fav is octopus), austrich, veal, lamb, snake, etc. Most people wont like it but my fav meal is beef tongue.

Food : I will take it all!. I like candies (I specially love the soft chewy kind like starburst), snacks, CHOCOLATE, cookies, all kinds of tea (except chamomille), coffee, anything dairy.

Huge Fan of ANYTHING-Pumpkin spiced.

I dont have any problem with alcohol or cigarrets, actually even though I dont smoke I usually buy a pack of local smokes while traveling as a souvenir.

I am Roman Catholic so I dont mind any Christian/Catholic items yet I am not interested in switching religions :)

Postcards

  • I usually like 99% of what I am sent, no matter the colors or picture. I am very flexible, I can do dark or pastels.

  • I dont mind any picture unless it is obscene or pornography.

  • Anything but ad postcards. Not a fan of them

    I am open and flexible about receiving anything you would like to send :)

  • I prefer postcards sent NAKED & STAMPED UNLESS you feel you need to protect the pc like in hand made cases, in such cases I am fine with receiving in an envelope.

I specially like:

  • Flowers

  • All Animals (but LOVE elephants)

  • Literature, authors, writers, calligraphy

  • Quotes

  • Beautiful landscapes

  • Architecture in general

  • Touristy Pcs

  • Funny/Joke pcs

  • B&W photography

Whishlist

  • ANYTHING with Elephants

  • Pocket Page Protectors (or similar) for pocketletters, (They are not sold in Mexico)

  • Bookmarks

  • Pictures,postcards,about any beautiful place on earth! TRAVELING is my passion and love to get inspiration from other people.

  • Candy!

  • ANYTHING-Pumpkin spiced

  • Chocolate

  • Tea

  • Key chains

  • Fridge magnets

  • Pens

  • Stationery

  • Stickers ( I like any kind, puffy or flat)(I DON'T like teacher/rewards, or promotions/ads)

  • Anything traditional from anywhere, that could help me get to know different cultures.

POCKET LETTERS

When I joined SwapBot I learned what Pocket Letters were. I REALLY WANT ONE!!!

I think they are beautiful and would LOVE TO LEARN HOW TO MAKE THEM so while I learn I would love a pocket letter from you.

If you do them I would love a private swap for one of your creations. In exchange I will not send one of course because I wouldnt know where to start but I can offer you many fun things from Mexico so just ask!

Comment: What cool photos!! I'm glad you included the ones you didn't take too, those are cool! And that fog is amazing. And what fun Christmas lights!! Your area looks more wintery than it does at my house! Besides the trees missing leaves, it pretty much looks the same here in Arizona all year round! Thanks for the fun look into your area!!
Response: Glad you have enjoyed them :)
