Pedro Nascimento’s first visit to Sweden in 2021 ended up on the islands of Smögen and Marstrand. He explains: Smögen is a locality in Sotenäs Municipality, Västra Götaland County, Sweden. It is one of the liveliest “summer towns” of the Swedish west coast. The community actually straddled several islands that lay so close together that the space in between has since been filled, and is now considered as a single island. The southern part consists mostly of Smögen Island, which lies in the centre. Around this lies to the south Kleven, in the northwest Sandön, and in the northeast, Hasselön. The town is connected to the neighbouring town Kungshamn by Smögenbron (Smögen Bridge).

Marstrand is a seaside locality situated in Kungälv Municipality, Västra Götaland County, Sweden. The town got its name from its location on the island of Marstrand. Despite its small population, for historical reasons Marstrand is often referred to as a city. The town has expanded to the neighbouring island of Koön, which has bridge access to the mainland.
