Journalists at Sochi are live-tweeting their hilarious and gross hotel experiences

Posted by   + Show Post

Amid continued debate over whether or not Sochi is prepared to host the 2014 Olympics (here are 15 alarming signs that Russia might not be ready) reporters from around the world are starting to check into local hotels — to their apparent grief. Some journalists arriving in Sochi are describing appalling conditions in the housing there, where only six of nine media hotels are ready for guests. Hotels are still under construction. Water, if it’s running, isn’t drinkable. One German photographer told the AP over the weekend that his hotel still had stray dogs and construction workers wandering in and out of rooms.

And Putin just keeps insisting everything is fine and ready.  Isn't that exactly what Obama keeps saying about the economy and Obamacare?

What do you expect from a work force that doesn't have any incentive to do better, a gov't full of corruption, generations of socialism....our future is their past and present.

Stray dogs sunning themselves near my hotel the other day. Worried about their fate. I have 1 word for them: Run!
