The Scandinavians

with Paulo Roberto Ribeiro Guimarães (Embassy of Brazil)

Would you like to know a bit more about the Scandinavians from a quite unusual point of view? Then change perspective and learn about the Brazilian perceptions about a region which in many aspects - not only climatic ones - could be considered the opposite of Brazil. In his book "The Scandinavians" the diplomat Paulo Guimarães, who was raised in Sweden and now is based in Copenhagen, guides us in a humorous way through the Nordic countries, explores the secrets of the enormously high level of human development and invites us to look behind the curtains of an only apparently uniform way of thinking and living.
