  1. Of course they don´t have any conection... The tribute to Santos Dumont is a good idea.
  2. The horses in Sydney were nervous....Rio could use araras (macaw) flying . Anyway, I just want Rio OC help everybody to forget the OC of the FIFA WC (what was that thing??!)
  3. Question: how do you think they will make the 5 olympic rings during the OC? Athens 04, Beijing 08 and London 12 were amazing. I wonder how Rio 16 will make that (maybe 5 drones?? )
  4. Maybe they will use all the green/ grass area (todo o espaço com grama).
  5. Of course not! The ceremonies will show the proud of the brazilians. Proud in their culture, in their history, in their music and in their great, great musicians ....Sorry, but no way Shaki!
  6. What a surprise!!! Probably we will see the carnival during the Closing Ceremony. The OC will be more intimist. That´s my bet.
  7. From my point of view, these could be some of the sections/proceedings for the Rio 2016 Opening Ceremony (RIO 2016 committee, you´re welcome ): 4 main characters (3 grandpas and a kid) drinking and eating in a "boteco" and telling (to the kid) a story: Between the Ocean and the Forest - scenario with a beach, ocean, forest, wildlife, indigenous traditions, the arrival of the portuguese.. In this section some indigenous could make a "handmade" and traditional fire/torch...to use later... Times Flies - about the transformations in Rio through time (some history with slave traditions and songs, capoeira, and Rio during the XIX and XX centuries) This is Rio - Rio nowadays: a modern, young, multicultural and so vibrant city, looking to the future.(with music, novelas, samba, favelas, futebol, calçadão, sports, good looking bodies also ) FlameS - the flame made by the indigenous in the begging of the ceremony could mix with the Olympic flame, to make a very and unique flame.
  8. Interesting: http://whirlwindodyssey.org/rio-odyssey/
  9. Who knows... I will send a letter to the BOC, IOC and POC!!
  10. I don´t know if Rio 2016 has some plan to build a tower near the Maracana Stadium, but could be an option... How they did during the Pan 2007?!
  11. I like that...and also i would like to watch an old man, an elder, or a group of elders (3 ethnic groups) telling a story or a legend and talking about the past, the present and the future of Brazil...and the story could start at Copacabana Beach or in the Amazon river... London was really amazing! Rio team needs to think very well about the ceremonies.
  12. From my point of view, these could be the ingredients for the opening or closing ceremony: Amazon/Nature/River/Wildlife Indigenous people/Indigenous legend Mixed cultures (indigenous, african people, portuguese, italian, japanese and others...) Samba/Bossa Nova/Funk/Carnival Brazilian writers (Jorge Amado, Paulo Coelho, Carlos Drummond de Andrade, José de Alencar, Machado de Assis and others...) Great singers and song writers (Caetano Veloso, Marisa Monte, Chico Buarque, Tom Jobim, João Gilberto and others...) Telenovelas and Sítio do Pica Pau Amarelo (why not? ) The mascosts : Turma da Mónica or Zé Carioca
  13. Yes, i agree with you....but this is just an idea... And maybe the IOC and ROCOG will give us a big surprise about the torch relay. We need to wait.
  14. I would like to watch something about a brazilian legend...maybe a indigenous legend. I think this could be a interesting start to the Ceremony...
  15. Maybe we should create a group to support this idea...would be great watch the olympic torch closer...and i think Lisbon needs something like this...but for now is just an idea and a dream... For me this should be the 2016 torch relay: Olympia, Athens, Lisbon and BRAZIL! And we have a strong brazilian community in Portugal
  16. I didn´t know that about my patrício...sorry... Most of the portuguese are supporting the Rio Games!! So, don´t worry about him.... Oh! And i want to see the Olympic Flame in Lisbon after Olympia, Greece and before Rio in 2016!!!!! I will talk with Djilma to bring the olympic flame to Lisbon!!! Is just a dream!
  17. Sorry, you are rigth.....sorry about that...i was a little upset and my english is not perfect...
  18. Nao gostei dessa generalização!!!!!! Portugal não é um país irrelevante a nível cultural! Aliás, o Brasil cultural, que é riquíssimo, deve muito a Portugal! Tal como deve a África ou à América do Sul! Portugal tem a sua cultura tal como o Brasil. Nenhuma é inferior!!! Além disso, e dentro do espírito olímpico, um bocadinho de respeito fica sempre bem! Adoro o Brasil e espero estar no Rio, mas acho que alguns brasileiros têm uma ideia errada da maioria dos portugueses. Venham cá e conheçam!
  19. Nem mais! A maioria dos portugueses gosta do Brasil! Tal como acredito que a maioria dos brasileiros gosta de Portugal. Além disso, a verdade é que os poucos que criticam os portugueses ou os brasileiros não conhecem a realidade e gostam de generalizar! Vai RIO!!
  20. Sim, há de facto muitos laços importantes entre o Brasil e Portugal....mas sinceramente acho que há tantos idiotas desse lado como cá!
  21. You are not the only one... ....some weeks ago i dreamt with the OC.... thousands of shining butterflies flying and making the 5 rings....
