Staggering situation beyond beleif really…….why wasnt the IOC all over this months ago , what is the purpose of the evaluation trips the IOC committee members take to Rio?
I must say though i am reading glowing reports by individaul sports people from differant countries on the feel and surroundings of the village …..
Safety is prority number one though not pretty trees and architecture


The Venezuelans are also now complaining about the Village. When people coming from a country where toilet paper is a hard to find luxury item have issues with how the Village is being built and operated, there is a big problem indeed.
