Olympics 2016 came at a high price for Rio de Janeiro, an enchanting city of jarring inequality

Rio remains a city of jarring inequality, a muggy kettle of friction, yet among both nature and inhabitants with curves of enchanting sensuality. Rio’s State government is bankrupt. Public services - hospitals, universities, schools and the police - are in short supply. The unemployment rate is searing. The political elite lobbied for the Olympic Games, not Rio’s ordinary citizens. At $11.5 billion, Rio 2016 came at too high a price for the city. #India #Brazil #IOC #Usain Bolt #Abhinav Bindra #Olympics #Rio de Janeiro #Michael Phelps #International Olympic Committee #PV Sindhu #Eduardo Paes #Rio 2016 #Olympics 2016 #Thomas Bach #Michael Johnson #Sakshi Malik #Dipa Karmakar #Barra da Tijuca #Favelas #Rafaela Silva #Wayde Van Niekerk #Horto #Globo #Sergio Cabral #Rocinha #Sao Conrado
