It’s still possible to book a last-minute trip to the Olympics in Rio de Janeiro. But how much is it worth to you to go?
In this edition of Mannes on the Street, we pose that question.
The 2016 Olympic Games in Rio will wind up on Sunday, Aug. 21. Among the highlights on that day, before the closing ceremony that evening, will be gold-medal games in men’s volleyball and men’s basketball, along with the men’s marathon. Unfortunately, the 2016 Games have been mired with poor press leading up to the games (everything from unfinished stadiums and villages to concerns over the Zika virus) and spotty bad news during the games (such as the robbery of Ryan Lochte and other athletes at gunpoint). We have found that prices have dropped considerably for the events, hotels, and flights.
So, how much would you spend to go the Olympics?
