Day 2 in Sao Paulo – Samba, Pagode e Capirinhas.

Probably you know  SP is a huge city with a total of 12 million people not counting with lots of cars and traffic. Despite the feeling of overwhelming emotions and excitement. We did not hesitate to enjoy the nice sites and the beautiful things the city has to offer. we know Sao Paulo can be a threat in the criminality levels but we did not want to think like that otherwise we would be 10 days fearful than happy enjoying the time of our lives. Unfortunately, we spent only 10 days, but if you have only 10 days is ok, you still can do a lot of things. I tell you that minute I landed I see how things are small and apparently out of shape. Sao Paulo is one of the biggest city with high up buildings all overs, apartments, and businesses are the deal in SP Capital.

Unfortunately, we spent only 10 days, but if you have only 10 days is ok, you still can do a lot of things. I can certainly tell you that the minute I landed I see how things are small and apparently out of shape. Sao Paulo is one of the biggest city with high up buildings all overs, apartments, and businesses are the deal in SP Capital, a mixture of old and new buildings and every curve.

I just had a great first day and enjoyed a family gathering and plannings throughout the rest of the week with friends.

We stayed in 1 Hotel the first week at Jardins by Paulista Av.

Sundays Paulista Av. Closes down and people can do walks, biking and enjoy an afternoon taking pictures and see the demographic spirit of the city most visited street with high buildings.

We did narrow 10 days to do things Matt as a gringo never seen but a lot of the things that were on our list was not able o check it out because he had it zero interest.

If you don’t like museums and arts skip that crap go to other events and parts of town.

Now, if you love bars, restaurants the city can give you great choices.

As a truly Brazilian, I want to experience my roots and that is filling myself what is authentically challenging to be found in the US –  cheese bread, pizza rodizio, Brazilian style hot dogs which is the best one in the country, pastel and of course samba, Feijoada e caipirinhas. 

Feijoada:

Surprise Reunion 2017 -Sao Paulo – Brazil

I have been dreaming of this day, I have been making a plan before my father past away I planned to see them waiting for me at the airport but when he past away I could not see my father, I could attend the funeral it was horrifying because I was waiting for my legal documentations and in the process I did not have a humanitarian ability to leave for such cause, my heart was shutter in peace’s and if I moved back I would never be able to accomplish my dreams here in the US. I had to find strength, pray, and simply hold myself into the arms of faith and God. It was hard brutally hard, losing my father changed everything and certainly nothing is the same when a loved one leaves everything seems different.

I wait so long to apply for my residence in the US and finally last year one day after election my case approved and I received my green card days later, it was an emotional rollercoaster with ups and downs.

I always thought I would be able to visit my family right away but certainly it did not happen, even though I got my documents I need the money for it and that would take years to save up and see them.

I always want to celebrate my birthday with my twin sister which is hard to live apart. It was hard but we still love each other, after dad past away our relationship just got stronger. I need to celebrate our birthdays one day so was a dream but not a plan.

This year is been the best year of my life I have a good job, I met a great man in my life that God rewards me with it, such an angel, hard worker and intelligent man who dreams and fight for the best for us. We are dating for less than a year but he is the best boyfriend I had in my life, there is no complaint whatsoever. We have a good relationship and very nurturing.

He shines me with a laugh, smile, and love. He makes me the best women in the world with qualities and differences. He took care of me when I had to go thru a tough hip surgery and every time he sees me off mood he cheers me up.

Matt always want to travel together somewhere but is hard for me with the hip surgery and after post-op would be ideal but I mentioned that first of taking off to another country I want to see my family and take care my father assets and see spend time with them after done I know I can go anywhere else. The last trip I had in my life was in 2006 where I spend 1 week at Disney World Orlando by myself it was fun but for some people was weird. I had a bless.

Flight tickets are expensive and I don’t have credit cards and my credit score is ok but apparently I don’t get nothing approved I have a good full-time job for a social media company and pay the bills but don’t give me a silver life.

Anyways, Matt and I decided this September for my bday to surprise my twin sister and with her best friend help we came up with a good plan.

I can’t explain the amount anxiety and no expectations I was, my heart was pounding I was with my blood streaming all over my body.  Watch and see how emotional was the great encounter of my life

Here is the link to my youtube channel to see this great adventure and the greatest trip of my life.

Say Yes When You Are Saying No 

Yes, sometimes is just like that! We get invited to places and we throw out excuses “I am too busy” ” I have a lot of work to do” ” I can’t this time” ” “money is too short” etc… the basic trick of life is experiencing. I confess that life is not roses here, recently recovering from a surgery, away from work, and feeling extremely limited physically and financially speaking. I will tell you the ugly truth is that without money you don’t do anything but with friends around is always a room for chance to cheer someone up, to give some source of entertainment, there is nothing more exciting to be assisted in moments like this – that won’t put you back on the track but helps to live life still thinking is a good life, despite the odds.

I am grateful for having an amazing healing after my Hip Labrum Repair/ FAI  surgery and feeling positive but is, unfortunately, a long process and requires patience and dedication and money.

I didn’t want to get out feeling blah! But I say yes when I didn’t want to and took the opportunity to accept my boyfriend’s invitation to invite me to his parents home and enjoy the moments the scene and landscape. It truly raining cats and dogs here but didn’t impede us to have a great time outdoor and movie nights.

It just amazing when you open yourself up to experience new things when you feeling the worst! Oh boy, but those mojitos were fantastic and pretty much numb my senses and woke up like ” yes, I drank a lot”. It is been fun down here but definitely is something worth to experience and to make a difference! Been locked up at home with no social life truly drives me crazy but getting the final note of medical excuse and soon to be discharged. One more week and back to work!

Got to yes when I want to say no! Ha!

I  hope to be a smooth transition back to my old routine.

Hopefully, that works!
