ESCRITÓRIO NOTURNOTHE MAJORNECRONAUTA - O ALMANAQUE DOS MORTOSMSP - NOVOS 50

“No stereotypes please – we’re Brazilian”

What comes to mind when I say Brazil? Dazzling football skills? Carnival celebrations? Or more negative images of urban poverty and gun violence? Either way, Brazilians care deeply about what the rest of us think.

f you visit Latin America’s largest nation, beware of the following four words: “Do you like Brazil?”

You’ll hear them from a taxi driver, a hotel porter, or maybe an immigration officer before you have actually set foot in the country.

I would suggest three possible answers.

“Yes.” “Definitely yes.” And: “Yes, Brazil is the greatest country I’ve ever seen.”

Any variation on the above will be met with a wounded expression and, quite possibly, a critical riposte about your own country.
