Silver (4/16)



  1. Like London had a hard act to follow after Beijing. The true is that every Olympic is different. China laid its own mark when they hosted, London laid its own mark now and Rio will do the same in 2016. Rio will have its ups and downs but in the end, I'm sure it's gonna be fun and enjoyable party. I don't think the brazilian organizers have to worry about London too much, they have to make their own Olympics now and hopefully people in the world will enjoy it, if not, I'm sure brazilians will love the experience either way. This is gonna be a south american Olympics, like it or not.
  2. They could use corcovado while lightining the caldron (maybe the flame will came from there), but not exactly put the caldron up there. I don't know, either way, the discussion about the 2016 caldron shpuld be even more interesting than the one we had about london's.
  3. I don't think so. I just saw the infield on brazilian tv. It's covered with an stylized union flag (or something like that). The weather looks cloudy, maybe we'll have light rain during the ceremony.
  4. He's probably talking about brazilian's forests. I have a feeling the CC will surpasse the OC by far!
  5. It looks like it's gonna be dance-heavy. I'm glad they're going to showcase the national culture instead of focusing just on Rio and samba. Should be fun.

  7. I gotta say: I LOVE the gymsnastic arena look. The jarring pink color is really vibrant and different. I hope Rio can do something like that in 2016.
  8. I think the mood of the 2016 games will be much more like in the vein of the 2000 games. Both countries are southern sunny places known for their gorgeous nature scenery and their fun-loving people.
  9. It would be great if she sings contemporary songs, but I think she will be told to sing bossa nova or some more known brazilian rhythm, which is understandable.
  10. Non-mainstream indeed. Although Marisa Monte is quite popular she isn't your typical brazilian show-woman.
