It's time for Rio to shine with the 2016 Olympic Games. Sadly it does look like it might limp to the finish line with reports of water pollution, broken rooms for athletes and safety issues (particularly muggings).
But yesterday morning (Aussie time) it started and I thought they did a marvelous job with their small budget. Heckle and Jeckle watched it and enjoyed the special effects and the story of Brazil's history. They even got the atlas out to look up Brazil (they wondered if the shape of the performance area was the shape of the country).
I love watching the Olympics and am looking forward to what's to come. Do you watch the Olympics?
Aussie, Aussie, Aussie. Oi, Oi, Oi.
