Photo: You Should Probably Avoid The Water In Sochi

Fun times in Sochi

As the Winter Olympics approach, journalists have flocked to Sochi, Russia to prepare to cover the games. As many had guessed, the town doesn't seem totally prepared to host such a huge event. Writers have begun to send in their early impressions of Sochi via Twitter:

Elsewhere, hotel owners are taking hospitality to a new level:

...and out in the streets of Sochi, there is a stray dog issue. Word came out yesterday that the town is going to exterminate strays, which appropriately started an uproar on social media.

The Winter Olympics look like they're going to be a mess. Somehow, being stranded in Secaucus trying to get to the Super Bowl doesn't seem so bad in retrospect.
