wandering Olympic City, Rio

Regards from sunny Rio de Janeiro. My first visit to Brazil.

Barra da Tijuca will host most of the venues of the Olympic and Paralympic Games in 2016. … including all the Gymnastics disciplines at Cidade Olimpica.

It’s not at all finished. And, just a few months before the Games, I wandered the place alone, very few workmen to be seen.

I’m not at all confident this place will be ready. They should be working 24/7 on it right now.
