Rowing in Rio: Arrival

After a long day (36hours) of travel we arrived to the Olympic Village. The flight could not have had more glitches if we had tried.

Syracuse to Newark: cancelled

rerouted: Syracuse to Washington stopped to refuel in Harrisburg, PA then late

Washington to Sau Paulo delayed 9 hours for mechanical

No oars in Sau Paulo, they were left in Washington

Sau Paulo to Rio was pushed back 4 times so we could make the flight

We did arrive at the Olympic Village at 1:30AM and they were ready for us  we all had our credentials validated, met the President of the Bahamas BOC, Wellington  and went to sleep

The village is a little unfinished, but beautiful  here is our view:
