Well, it has just been announced the Rio will get the 2016 Olympics and ParaOlympics.
I think this is a big mistake, but I wish the Brasilians much luck in their mission.
Read Gabriela's blog to understand why...
but it comes down to one word..
Yes, the city is beautiful, it has enthusiasm and pride beyond anything I have ever seen...
but it is very hard to control crime here.
I also believe they better start construction TODAY...
because for the PanAm games that were here when we first arrived, not all the venues were completed on time!
Congratulations Brasil, Rio...good luck
