"Football is not a matter of life and death, it is more important than that."

Bill Shankly, Liverpool Football manager

Rio 2016 sites

Adrian and I booked a taxi to take us to see some of the Olympic Venues to give us a feel for location and distance between the various sites.

It was interesting and we were able to see a number of sites, most of them just building sites. It reminded me of some of my visits to the London Olympic Park in various stages of its development.

The main Olympic stadium.

From the back.

At least someone is working.

This will be the Olympic Park.

Some work still to do outside Olympic Park.

Any bad misses by forwards in World Cup Games are designed as failing to hit a cow's backside with a banjo. Imagine our delight when visiting the Brazilian Olympic Committee gave Adrian a chance to give it a try!
