For every Olympics, an Athletes Village is created to house the thousands who take part in the sporting events. But what about the thousands of journalists who cover the Games? While many are in hotels, most stay in so-called Media Villages — typically new high-rises in the suburbs where apartments will be rented or sold after the Olympics. VOA's Parke Brewer — and his VOA colleagues — are staying in one west of downtown Rio.
