i visited rome twice during 2015 year of sdgs- so glad campaign to get olympics to rome failed now that the olympics is the biggest bankruptcy in sports unless you or the virus knows better

my family has never come across a 20th c country as smart as japan so i hope the heavens find a way of its olympics and tourism trap- one reason i loved japan so many family vacation spaces - may they get the first of bail out funds so every community can continue rising with nature
