Well, Rio, you did it! I think I am still in shock. I am the first to admit when I am mistaken and in this case I certainly was - I did NOT think that Rio would be awarded the games, but I sure am glad it was.
I had a tear in my eye as I watched - up until the part when I saw Lula, red faced, bawling uncontrollably into a handkerchief, at the press conference and then at that point I switched to laughing... So cute. Brazil certainly brings the passion!!! I wish I could have been down on Copacabana with the masses, celebrating.
Now comes the hard part, and it will be interesting to see how Rio pulls it off. No matter what the outcome, the 2016 Olympics are sure to be picturesque, entertaining and one of a kind. I hope this brings about changes for the better for Rio.
