On my way to Brazil

The blog will be a little less active in the next few days as I'm flying to Brazil today.

I will be between Rio and Brasilia, where I'll be  hanging out with family and friends  discussing the transport legacy of the Olympic Games in Brazil and its impacts on urban accessibility and equity. In case you're also going to the WPSC conference, feel free to drop me a line or a tweet so we can chat over some caipirinhas at the conference.
