Not returning home after the World Cup ..
« on: July 05, 2018, 12:28:06 PM »
As I remember I don't think there was many visitors to the Olympic Games who loved London so much they wanted to stay on..?

Ok maybe a few never asked but stayed any way , if you know what I mean. But generally no one loved the place! It was just a shit hole that happened to be holding the Olympic Games nothing more..

But the news here is full of foreigners who love the country.. and want to stay and find work..  :laugh:

Comparing the Opening ceremonies between the 2008 and 2012 Summer Olympics, it was a HUGE letdown in London.  They should have just cancelled the Games.   :chuckle:

For the 2016 Games, Brazil lost a ton of money erecting all of the sports complexes.  Waste of money to an impoverished country.  Also, one of the Olympic promoters from Brazil got locked up for corruption and bribery.   (:)
