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.

    • Happy Father’s Day!
Today we celebrate Father’s Day here in the United States.
.
.
My family chose to stay home and cook some of my husband’s  favorites. We had Brazilian rice & beans, turkey burgers with portobello mushrooms, gluten free spinach bake, Brüssel sprouts with garlic and radish salad. As you can see, it was a very unusual mix, but it made him very happy and we enjoyed cooking and eating together.
.
If you also celebrate Father’s Day today, what did you do? 
Wishing you a fun and loved filled Sunday!

    • Capoeira is an Afro-Brazilian Martial Art very dear to me. 
It’s also, the most multicultural art form I have been exposed to, which I have been practicing, on and off, at all four continents  I called home.
.
.
Next Thursday, one of my first Capoeira Masters, M. Brasília will be right here in my home state, Connecticut, and you are invited.
.
.
Please let me know if you want to learn more, or if you are close to New Haven, stop by.

It’s a beautiful day here in Connecticut. So, I decided to work outside and drink my lunch, which is a yummy smoothie, while enjoying the beautiful weather. .
☀️ Answering emails hasn’t been this relaxing for quite a long time!
