With respect to Buenos Aires bid: first you have to be concerned about the energy generation , which is a infrastructure problem. After that (years maybe) this bid might be possible.

Evidently you have not been to Buenos Aires. I love the town and will be going back soon but I just don't see this happening in 2016. I do hope I am wrong.

So it is not only a question of beauty, but a question of infrastructure.

We have 5 commuter train lines and 2 metro lines which are used by 1 million people per day. More than the entire system transport of Curitiba

Sorry but the cities you cited are not even among the 5 biggest cities in Brazil. They are regional cities with goog quality of life, but this doesn´t mean nothing. Maybe, down the line, some of them can host pan american games, but even now this is impossible for them.
When it comes to hosting events like this, wealth and quality of life go a long way. If a city is trying to bring in outsiders, its own population is insignificant. All that matters is handling the infrastructure.

South America

My vote is for Rio de Janeiro and Buenos Aires.
Also hope that the dreamer of Venezuela's Chavez bids for Caracas.
All these cities are capable of hosting the games.
It's time that the latinos host the olimpics.
Good luck to the latinamerican cities bidding for the games. It's not easy to bid againt cities like Chicago, or Toronto. These are rich cities that can offer more to the oci if you know what I mean. It is sad, but it is the world we're live in.
I also love the idea of Monterrey 2016. Beautiful city.

^ Well you don't have to worry about Toronto in 2016. Were just hoping that Chicago doesn't win so Toronto can bid for 2020.(sorry chicago I love your city but I love mine more lol) So lets go Rio or Buenos Aires or even Tokyo for 2016!!!!

Yeah you have been downplaying Chicago, obviously for that reason. IMO Chicago has a great bid, quite centralized (besides football preliminaries like almost anywhere). Its almost ideally located around grant and washington parks. Almost all the venues have tenants now, as well as after the games.
I feel Chicago is the early favorite, with many sustainable venues and all the monetary and political power that comes with being a top city like that. Although Rio very well could, they have the venues. Tokyo already hosted, and putting in Tokyo that soon after Beijing and makes it less likely. Dubai could put together a pretty good bid, although the venues are small at present, and summer in the desert is less than ideal.
I'd love to see Chicago and Toronto (being in Minnesota the proximity would be worth it alone, not to mention the football prelims in town), although it won't work out that way.

I say Rio.

If Dubai gets it IMO it should be at night, so it won't be hot.

Or... Dubai could be world's first city to have world's first outdoor A/C to keep Dubai cooler. Anything is possible in Dubai.

I was rooting for Rio, but the behaviour of the spectators at the Pan American Games has been unforgiveable. The Games are supposed to be about unifying people through sport. Brazilian crowds have actually been booing non-Brazilian athletes. You boo bad behaviour or unsportsmanlike conduct, you never boo a human being. Can you imagine being booed on a podium after devoting 15 years of your life to sporting excellence?

Disgusting! I doubt the IOC is too impressed either. If this is how they treat people, my vote is now going elsewhere. Rio and Brazil have blown it.

The Brazilian people changes the mentality to the moment of the games in 2016. The Pan American Games was a big test.
But see for positive interest.. The installations as the arenas, Olympic Stadium to international level, the cycle track, the aquatic park and the structure of security that was mounted and was left after the event, etc.

There are only 3 confirmed bid cities so far: Madrid, Chicago, and Tokyo. Is this right? Deadline for submissions is September 13, 2007.
