Goodbye London, Hello Rio

A facebook friend just shared this great image from Nathan the Nerd's Tumblr site -- direct link to post here (I suppose he created it/ has copyright to it and I hope it's OK to share it):
I also hope that Rio's Olympic Games in 2016 won't become a huge problem for Brazil the way the Athens games were/are for Greece. I worry particularly about the process of "gentrification" of the city that will probably occur (displacing poorer populations from areas closer to the city and thereby distancing them from their workplaces) and the rampant corruption that can occur in infra-structure works of this magnitude. Let's hope for the best for Rio 2016 and Brazil!
