Journalists finding horror and humor in Sochi Winter Olypics hotels
Washington Post ↑

Mike Caro says:

Okay, so what do we have here? Dogs running loose in hotels without floors, open wastebaskets to hold used toilet paper — an adventure you’ll never forget.

The thing is, the entire purpose of Russia bidding for and winning the Winter Olympics was presumably to showcase the country. This might call for a public relations makeover. But, it also makes this one of the most interesting Olympics to watch, because — in addition to the athletic competition — you get the suspense of possible terrorism, overzealous police, skii slopes that are too steep, humorous complaints from visitors, and all kinds of unexpected drama. Who could resist watching this? — MC
