Lies Nidi62, lies... there are pictures everywhere of the problems mentioned, like clogged drains, dirty floor or windows... too much drama for me but OK, they had a reason for that.
"things that haven't happened yet, but will". lol, what if the power goes out one night? The power went out during the superbowl recently, isn't that true? I didn't see anyone reporting how crap that place was because the power went out for a few minutes. I don't remember any power failure during the WC in Brazil...
You people think because a place has poverty than EVERYTHING must be crap. People should actually experience a day in a developing country to wake up from all the bad things the media throws at them.
"Don't go to Brazil, you'll get a exotic disease and lose a liver to some drug lord. And they can't control their own crimes, i'm sure terrorists will wander free there. Here, go to France instead to see the UEFA Cup. Don't mind the terrorist attacks that just took place, i'm sure they will be able to stop any terrorist attempts."
And Australia returned to the village today, sure there were some problems but it is not cataclysmic like most people think.
