Rio 2016

During the New Year's Eve at Copacabana Beach, the logo for the 2016 Olympics Games was announced.

Three interconnected human figures, embrancing the diversity of races and differences, where you can see the Sugarloaf silhouette:

For an interesting article above the Olympics on the Economist go here. But I have to disagree that the international airport in Rio is "operating above capacity": most of the times I have been there the flux of passengers was pretty okay, compared to other overcrowded airports in the world. I disagree with some other points from the article as well.

(Source: well, how do I know all that ? I follow The Adventures of a Gringa in Rio... on the Facebook. Go there ! I have also supplied Rachel twice with links to documentaries... )

The video above is pretty, although I think the institutional video from 2009 is far more energetic and charming:



And recent 360o degrees photos of Rio and Brazil you can enjoy clicking on this link.
And ten facts about Brazil that will blow your mind here, on a short article.

Eu achei bonitinha essa logo das olimpíadas! =D
Sério que vc acha o galeão bom? Poxa, volta e meia vou pra lá e só me estresso. O terminal novo está até bom, mas o antigo podia melhorar.
O problema msm acho que é o caos aereo em todo país. As cias aéreas brasileiras não estão tão bem preparadas como deveriam, afinal cobram mto bem pelas passagens.
Meu último voo do Rio pra SP pela GOL atrasou mais de 2h e sem dar nenhuma satisfação. Detalhe: o tempo estava bom e nem era alta temporada!

Nao disse que acho o Galeao "bom". Longe disso, e' cafona, abafado e acanhado. O que eu acho e' que nao e' lotado. Pelos menos nao tem todo o trafego internacional, intenso, como Schiphol. Mas eu so vou la a cada dois ou tres anos e nunca durante Natal, Revillon, Carnaval, etc.

Oii, Anita!
Ok, me desculpe! Eu me expressei errado mesmo. Só quero ver como o galeão vai ficar nesses eventos.
Desculpe ai o mal entendido. ;D
Beijinhos,

I can see how you can get the wrong idea sometimes when you hear or read comments like those from The Economist about Rio operating above its capacity - I guess they've never been to a super busy airport before? Or maybe they were there during the holiday season?
