[Homework]2016-04-13&04-15 巴西陷双重危机 能否为世界带来盛大奥运会?

Take a stroll on the beach and at first it seems nothing has changed, Brazil's cliches endure, its gorgeous beaches, its fun loving attitude, its image as the country of the future.
But you take a closer look and you wonder what happened, well, it's a political and economic drama so devastating, it's shattering many of those cliches.
First up the economy slashed by Brazil's worst recession in a generation, and that could turn it into an all low depression by year's end, unemployment is close to 10%, thousands of businesses have closed. Nasiza W has been running this Rio restaurant and bar for more than a half century, he tells me of course we are living through a crisis, and the scope of it is the worst I've ever seen. Could things get worse? They just did with a crushing political drama, Brazilians are outraged by a scandal so sordid, it already implicates more than half the country's national politicians and a kickback scheme allegedly orchestrated by the state-run national energy conglomerate Petrobas, and that's not all, Brazilian president Dilma Rousseff is cornered by a budget scandal that could see her impeached within weeks , her predecessor Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva once revered as a saviour of modern Brazil also under investigation for kickbacks.
Brazilians are devouring news from watergate style wire taps in every corner and crevice of their everyday lives.
Thieves, it's sad but it's... they are thieves.
How can you guys cope? how will you cope?
Embarrassing.
Embarrassing the whole thing.
And to crack confidence still further, Brazil is coping with zika, a mysterious virus stalking the country, one that may cause a devastating neurological disorder in hundreds of newborns, and Brazil's already challenging f*, there is fear.
We are worried about the situation, she tells me, and we are trying to cope with it.
So we have a country shattered by economic despair, demoralized by a political crisis, and plagued by zika, and through all these, in just a few short months Brazil welcomes the world for the Olympics.
So we went to the museum of tomorrow, Olympic legacy project incidentally its construction also implicated in the kickback scheme to find out how Brazilians plan to deal with it all.
You're going to put it on pause?
Yes, pause and no Olympic games, we all...
Start to circus.
Yes, now it's a mess.
A mess and a reminder that even with the Olympics coming, Brazilians are struggling to hold on to those classic cliches that once made them so proud.
