A little tip for all you foreign fellows thinking about coming here for the Olympics or something. Don't. This place is a shithole. We are deep in a economic crisis due to massive corruption scandals, crime has skyrocketed recently (there have been cases of cops kidnapping athletes and murder-robberies are at a peak, for example), everything is ridiculously expensive (especially for a country as poor as ours), the infrastructure is complete shit, among other less broad reasons.
