Andreas  Wunn - Brazil for Insiders


Brazil for beginners, insiders and lovers

"Tudo bem!" is frequently heard in Brazil – "All's fine!" And with it goes the thumbs-up sign as a typical Brazilian gesture. But there is one thing you need to know: the thumbs-up sign has as many meanings as the sea shades of blue – yes, no, please, thank you, sorry …

Brazil is likeable and sensuous, the country of alegria and saudade, joy and melancholy; the land of our longings and of sharp contrasts. In Rio de Janeiro, the golden beaches of Copacabana and the shanty towns known as favelas are only a stone's throw away from each other. The overwhelming Amazon rainforest and that megacity called São Paulo stand for Brazilian superlatives, bossa nova and flip-flops for the easy-going way of life in Brazil.

Andreas Wunn, ZDF Brazil correspondent, takes readers on a journey through a country that is politically and economically going through a period of change. But nevertheless, there are still a few rules to be obeyed: you only ever stay at home if it rains or there is soccer on TV. Stress is only for mardi gras. And God is a Brazilian.
