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.

    • Floating market! Ah... the colors, the smells... they have everything, from coconut ice cream and cakes to snakes, and in between, spices, hats, hot soups, tropical sweet fruits and weird looking herbs. It’s very touristic but still a totally magical experience for us.

    • My first Tuk Tuk ride!

    • Decided to mingle with the locals and bought a new pair of pants and a colorful fan at the local market. Still they say “こんにちは” (konichuwa) when I enter the restaurants around here! 
Can’t hide my heritage!!! .
🇯🇵 Decide tentar me disfarçar como Tailândesa, e comprei calça-Asia’s novas e um leque no mercado local. Mesmo assim, todos me dizem “こんにちは” (konichuwa) quando entre nos restaurant locais. 
Nāo dá pra esconder as minhas origens por aqui!

    • It looks more like a flower market than an international airport. Love it! .

Parece mais um mercado de flores do que um aeroporto internacional. Lindo!

    • “Follow your bliss.
If you do follow your bliss,
you put yourself on a kind of track that has been there all the while waiting for you,
and the life you ought to be living is the one you are living.
When you can see that,
you begin to meet people
who are in the field of your bliss,
and they open the doors to you.
I say, follow your bliss and don't be afraid, and doors will open
where you didn't know they were going to be.
If you follow your bliss,
doors will open for you that wouldn't have opened for anyone else.” .

    • Embracing my silver hair - 5 months and counting.
With the new short haircut, the golden highlights are mostly gone.
Surprise, surprise, most of my silver hair is framing my face, and in the back it’s mostly black with some silver strands. .

5 meses de transiçāo para grisalha. 
Surpresa! Com o novo corte de cabelo curto, descobri que a maioria do meu cabelo branco esta somente na frente. Atrás tem uns fiozinhos prateados, e a maioria dos fios sāo pretos.

    • Wondering how Nice looks like when the weather is good. During a raining day it’s already absolutely gorgeous!

Fico imaginando como Nice deve ser quando o tempo esta bom. Hoje, com chuva e tudo já estava linda demais.
