Report The Deodoro Cluster in Rio de Janeiro 2016 Summer Games Posted November 23, 2015 Just keep in mind it can take much longer than you expect to get between venues. The Organizers priorities are security, crowd control, VIPs and the press. Continence for pion spectators is low on their list. Entrance and exits aren't necessarily where you would expect.... crowds can be directed on long winding paths... obvious cut-through can be blocked, extra security can pop up where you don't expect, etc. I learned my lesson after it took an hour to get between two somewhat close venues on the Beijing Olympic Green. Then again, sometimes access can be easy. The London committee had the logistical issues down pat; everything went smooth. Vancouver was the worst. There's no good way to predict. So just plan for things to take a long time, and be happy if they don't In a straight line, they are very close to each other, indeed. But, as you said, crowds management and safety barriers will surely make it a longer way.
