They did a simulation in São Paulo's metro too


Yes, I saw the report on ' Today ' but found the video.
We are preparing the issue of security . I believe that local criminals are not a threat to foreigners, the World Cup and the Pan 2007, there was nothing relevant.
But I believe the threat of groups such as the ' ISIS ' must be taken into account. I hope that the 85,000 agents deem account.
The Brazilian Intelligence Service recently found an alleged threat made ​​by a group ISIS .

Not sure whether it's because the Olympic park looks so depressing, but those venues look very basic and boring.

It seems a lot more gray than in the project.
The own way in the center, should be colored, and it's so gray ... the project was more beautiful. By the application of the design was better.
