The Sochi Winter Olympics Prep Is a Total Disaster (32 pics)

Posted in Random » Weird   6 Feb 2014   / 12671 views

With only a few days before the start of the Sochi Winter Olympics, many of the hotels and facilities within the area are not exactly up to scratch. Here are some of the hilarious tweets from journalists who are experiencing the total disarray first-hand.

 

The hotels aren’t functional.

Some of them aren’t even finished.

Desperation has kicked in

Even the bathrooms are a challenge to use.

Thats okay, I’ll just hold it.

The amenities may be lacking, but at least there’s this perk

Water also seems to be at a premium

Even leaving the hotel can be problematic

Can’t even enjoy an ice cold Coke.

It's only a drill, we swear.

At Least some athletes are making friends

You could always get a refreshing drink to calm the nerves… oh.

This was the view this morning from the Ice Cube Curling Center — we’re assuming the piles of earth are not decorative.

Construction workers could still be seen this week finishing hotels in the area.

Still, at least the views are nice.

The Sochi games are costing Russia $51 billion to stage, which is five times the the cost of the last Winter Olympics, which were in Vancouver, Canada, in 2010.

most of that $51 billion has apparently been diverted to the pockets of putin and friends.
