sorry, but have you seen what happens to host cities AFTER the Olympics? have you seen Beijing's olympic buildings?? they're not being used and are now vacant, even the huge main stadium is now not being used...
it's very short sighted of everyone to think about what happens DURING the Olympics. yes, it's nice because of the incoming tourists.
my opinion is that the other 3 cities are much better equipped to deal with their Olympic infrastructure AFTER the Olympics comes and goes.
for me, I had a friend who went to Rio a few years ago and got robbed. had to go to the hospital for a few days. I wouldn't fly down there for the Olympics.

With its bright sandy beaches, traveling hills and picturesque harbour, it's no wonder that Rio de Janeiro is called the "cidade maravilhosa", or marvellous city and with hotelbye you are able to get the possibility and visit this phenomenal city. Rio de Janeiro is facing the South Atlantic coast and is the second-largest town in Brazil. That town is gifted with one of the very most beautiful organic options for a city in the world. The impressive landscape is one of the causes that guests chose Rio de Janeiro. Throughout carnival year, a event that everybody else heard, the roads fill with music and ornately costumed dancers attracting tourists from all over the globe.

I am happy since I did not want to go to Chicago, but I would not have minded Tokyo or Madrid either.
I think this will be a good Olympics and certainly a good trip.
