SANDRA BISSELL

My name is Sandra Bissell.
I have been blessed with the opportunity to live as an expatriate for more than 2 decades.

Some of my passions are people, my family, good conversations, traveling, ethnic food, dancing and Capoeira, an Afro-Brazilian-Martial-Art-Dance.

Originally from the countryside of São Paulo state, in Brazil, I have enjoyed life in Kanagawa and Aichi prefectures, in Japan, Boston and San Diego cities, in the United States, São Paulo, Brazil, as an expatriate in my own country, Zurich – Switzerland and most recently Stamford, Connecticut, back to the United States.

As you may guess, I feel the most comfortable within the international community.

    • Now that I embraced my gray hair I have been wearing more colors.
Today, I stopped to say good morning to our landscaper and was greeted with - “WOW! You look beautiful!!” - 
Needless to say, this guy has his job guaranteed. ;-) .
🌹
Agora com o meu cabelo grisalho estou adorando usar roupas mais coloridas.
Hoje, quando parei para falar bom dia para o Jairo, a pessoa que cuida do nosso jardim, ele me surprendeu dizendo - “Você esta linda!!”- Acho que vou usar mais vermelho à partir de agora! ;-)

    • Happiness is ... when the work you do and the life you lead allows you to show your true colors. 
Have a terrific Saturday!

Felicidade é... quando o trabalho que você faz, e a vida que você vive se tornam um palco no qual todas as suas ‘caras e bocas’ sāo muito bem vindas!
Um lindo sábado pra vocês!

E o desafio continua. 8/112
Descobri que o meu braço direito, o dominante, dobra, o que me faz cair do lado esquerdo, que é retinho, mas bem mais fraquinho. 🤸🏻‍♀️
Gaining strengthen and body consciousness. During these last days, I’ve found out that my right arm, my dominant one, bends a bit, and with that, I fall to the left side, which is my weakest arm. Also, my handstands don’t look very straight at all as you can see below. And the challenge continues... #personalchallenge #handstandpractice #foreverlearning #cabecaprabaixo #aprendendo #goals #metas #lifestylecapoeira #joy

    • Bye, Bye, Switzerland 🇨🇭! Hello, France 🇫🇷! I arrived back to Switzerland last November, thinking that this time, I’d stay here for a few years.
We had lived here for a year in 2014.

But, life had other plans for Brett and I, and we’ll be moving to France 🇫🇷 in the next months.

This is by far the shortest relocation in my life! Still, I enjoyed some amazing views, relaxing walks, fondues, meeting a few friends and learning more about the Swiss culture, 
Now, it’s time to say ‘au revour’ to this beautiful country. 
In the end, the immigration officer who welcomed me back in November, was wrong. 
I didn’t stay forever!
🇨🇭
🇫🇷
Voltei para a Suíça em novembro passado, pensando que desta vez, ficaria aqui por alguns anos.
Nós havíamos morado aqui por um ano, em 2014.

Mas a vida nos surpreendeu novamente, e o  Brett e eu, estamos nos mudando para a França nos próximos meses.

Esta é a mudança mais curtinha da minha vida! Ainda assim,  deu para aproveitar um pouquinho, com vistas incríveis, passeios relaxantes, fondues saborosos, rever alguns amigos queridos e aprender um pouco mais sobre a cultura suiça.
Agora é hora de dizer "au revour" para esse lindo país.

No final, a policial da imigração Suiça, quem me recebeu em novembro, estava errada, 
Eu não fiquei pra sempre!
