“It’s total chaos in Rio de Janeiro,” says one observer. With destroyed buildings, fires in the streets, and police armed with tear gas, Rio has never been less prepared for next year’s games. The seemingly small increase in bus fares has sparked wider grievances. Yet opinions about the protests are split; while some believe the protesters have the right to be outraged, others take a lighter view. “Come to Brazil! This is what happens here. Enjoy!”
