Can't wait! Love watching these dedicated athletes putting everything they have into something they love.
I too think Rio wasn't the place for the Olympics for all reasons stated previously, but I do like the Olympics in general.
Opening ceremony this morning - woot woot!
Damn pregnancy hormones, I keep crying every time they play someone's "I'm going to Rio" phone call!
Then I decided to look at future Olympic cities and see Brisbane will likely put a bid in for 2028. Which - you guessed it - made me cry!
Not much into the ceremonies myself, but I'm looking forward to the sports themselves getting underway.
I know someone who grew up in Rio and a couple of people who still live there and even they can't believe they decided to have it there (or that anyone would want to go there). In their words "This is not a nice touristy city to come to. People are going to die". Hope that's not the case, but I guess we'll see :/
I thought the opening ceremony was beautiful really loved it! The official stuff was boring as hell but I fast forwarded that part lol I love seeing how emotional people get, like the torch relay. And the carnival dancing and music was awesome.
Re: "this is not a nice touristy city" I've heard the same about rio from Brazilian friends. But I do love the Brazilian culture.
Yep! I thought they did a wonderful job.
