Buenos Aires 2018

Recommended Posts

The YOG's handovers are kept at a minimum since Singapore. As a matter of fact, the protocols are very loose in these games: the flame seems unimportant, the order of segments in the shows and everything else.

The Mayors of Nanjing and Lillehammer attended the closing ceremony of Singapore 2010 for Nanjing and Innsbruck 2012 for Lilliehammer.

Probably because things are a bit Messi down there with workers striking against Cristina and stuff.

Nah, nobody gave a damn about this strike except for the syndicalist leaders that want take a piss on the govermnent the most they can. In fact, almost all the workers were actually annoyed by being not allowed to work today. And even then, the mayor of Buenos Aires (Macri) is part of the political opposition, so he had no dog in this fight.

I really don't have a clue as to why he didn't travel. I think it may be because he has been critiziced in the past for his luxury holiday trips outside Argentina (he's a millionaire businessman), so perhaps he wants to give an image of "austerity and only work" now that he's running for president next year.
