The Olympic golf course took three years to make and drew much ire because it was built in a national wildlife reserve. Now it's run-down and empty.

The Olympic Village, too, is a ghost town.

One practice pool has turned orange, and the structure next to it is quite literally falling apart.

Here's a closer look at the eerie orange water ...

... and the nearby structure, where panels are falling off.

Inside the Aquatic Center, the pool is drained except for some unpleasant standing water.

A notice at the Deodoro Sports Complex reads "We are in recess."

An outside view of the Carioca Arenas, which hosted the basketball events and others.

Quite symbolically, this set of Olympic rings is half covered.

The famed Maracana Stadium has gone to waste.

The turf is brown, and patches are missing.

Seats have been pried from the stands.

In one dugout, a trash can has been overturned and seats are crumbling.

Wires hang in a broadcast booth in the Maracana.

Here are seats at the Maracana.

Another depressing scene from the Olympic stadium.

The media center was recently demolished and is now a health hazard.

Here's a closer view of the trash left over from the demolition of the media center.

The beach volleyball venue is used sporadically.

Thousands of favelas residents were displaced during construction of the Olympic venues, and the favelas that were supposed to be improved ahead of time have only gotten worse.

Craziest of all, the Olympics were only six months ago.
