No. You shouldn't assume that. Do you know the 7 hills of Rome? Or the major hill in San Francisco? In Paris? Just because someone is NOT familiar with a world-famous landmark shouldn't make him/her stupid.

When did you hear of the Empire State Builidng? Or St. Basil's Church in Moscow? etc., etc. So before you learned of those things -- then you would've considered yourself "stupid, " tadeu. By your very own words.

BTW, nice photos of Rio. But now, I also finally understand why the IOC rated its 2016 Transport plan low. The crazy, jagged layout of the city will make easy travel to certain venues difficult. That's what's initially difficult to understand about Rio's layout.

Go rhymes better with Chicago than Rio.

And did anybody notice that the 2014 Winter Games are in SoCHI. So Sochi segues very nicely into CHIcago?

I could sail to Toronto in a day.

There are plans to be a new harbor at 31rst St. where the teams would sail from. It woud lay directly south of the Olympic village and the Olympic village beach. I would think that security would be heavy or that marina even closed during the games though but Chicago has so many nearby that I don't think it would be an issue.

I have a feeling that a lot of Great Lakes and maybe even some Eastern seaboard boaters would follow you and we would see a bit of an armada then we already have over the summer which would be a wonderful site I think. It would be an awesome site especially during opening and closing ceremonies.

Who said i dont know Empire State Building or St. Basil Church?? Everybody knows!! They are all world famous landmarks like Sugar Loaf. Sorry if u dont agree but who dont know then lives in other planet! And you cant compare Sugar Loaf with some hills from Rome or San Francisco.. Sugar Loaf is a symbol of Rio with The Christ.
