Today, I learned that:

Last night, I took my son and his girl friend to an outdoor consert with Skank, one of Brazil’s leading rock band for a couple of decades, which you can see in full action in the photo below. The surprising venue was Arena Brasil, located in the outskirts of Paraná’s leading textile city, Cianorte. The evening was warm and pleasant. Skank presented a mixed program spanning from some of their all-time hits until the most recent tunes. The public interacted well with the band and sang together the lyrics of the well-known songs. And the whole arena exploded when Skank once again paid a tribute to the Brazilian pastime, football. Listen to “É Uma Partida De Futebol” (It is a Football game) in reference #1 below.

Yesterday’s event came as a relaxing break from the distressing reality of the Brazilian everyday life. However, the rotten economy, the political scandals, the official corruption, etc., are still here. Radio Sweden’s Saturday program about Economics discussed all this in a way accessible to all its listeners. Listen to the program in reference #2 below (unfortunately only in Swedish) and stay on top of the current situation here.

… That’s what I learned in school !
