Back on American soil, I find myself craving McDonald's. I suspect that has nothing to do with actually wanting to eat McDonald's but rather the quintessentially American experience it represents.
Twenty-four days after heading off to Brazil, I have returned. What was supposed to be my final “Bom dia” blog yesterday summed up the experience nicely, if I do say so myself, but I did feel like putting a representative sample of my Olympics coverage in one place and this seemed the best way to do it.
So here are links to a few of the highlights from Rio. It's good to be (almost) home. And as they say there, obrigado and tchou.
