Foreigners need an specific visa to work in Brazil, even if in temporary jobs. In Natal, however, the Federal Police and the Labour Ministry (which are both understaffed and overbusy) have never been seen chasing illegal workers.
If you think about finding paid work, be aware that salaries are low and opportunities are few. Some foreigners can find temporary jobs as language teachers (better to offer private lessons than to try the schools), tourist guides (Swedish tourists would probably like a Swedish speaking guide) or teaching specific skills (diving, tattooing, etc).
