Thread: Sochi, Russia - Dangerous Face Water?

    Sochi, Russia - Dangerous Face Water?

    While Sochi is nice in many regards (before they started preparing for the Olympics), Russia hasn't really taken care of the essentials for guests. They still haven't finished building out everything the need. While this is normal for many Olympics held all over the place (not finishing until last minute), the finished hotels still aren't finished.

    Check out the tweet and picture by this lady:

    My hotel has no water. If restored, the front desk says, "do not use on your face because it contains something very dangerous." #Sochi2014

    And then she tweeted this picture saying "at least I know what dangerous face water looks like".

    During an episode of “Breaking Bad,” Walter White memorably declared, “I am the one who knocks.” During my first night in Sochi, I got a visit from the one who doesn’t.

    The only sound I heard was a key going into the lock and, at around 4 a.m. Wednesday, the door to my hotel room opening. Half asleep, I looked up and saw the light shining in from the hall. But by the time I sat up to see who was there, the door had been shut again. The one who doesn’t knock scurried away without uttering a word.

    Do housekeepers work graveyard shifts here? Was it a construction worker, assuming something wasn’t quite finished in the room? Who else would both have a key and be using it at 4 a.m.?

    In Sochi, those are questions better left unasked. Or at the very least, they will remain unanswered. I tried calling the front desk, but the phone didn’t work. And really, given the much more serious hotel issues others have experienced, I wasn’t about to complain.

    I dozed off again until around 5 a.m., when the sound of stray dogs barking began to echo outside, like a tree filled with birds singing just before sunrise, albeit less soothing. Stray dogs are part of the scene in Sochi, roaming the streets and occasionally chasing after pedestrians.

    Giving up on sleep, I decided to walk down the hall and take the elevator five floors down to grab breakfast. Inside, a sign listed “elevator user rules” that included a ban on “explosive, inflammable and toxic substances in non-factory packaging.” Fortunately, all my toxic substances were properly packaged. At the end of the list, this message appeared in bold red letters: “Please REMEMBER: Elevator is the equipment of increased danger!”

    Suddenly, the one who doesn’t knock didn’t seem so dangerous.

    The reception of our hotel in #Sochi has no floor. But it does have this welcoming picture.

    People have asked me what surprised me the most here in Sochi. It's this. Without question ... it's ... THIS.

    Hopefully there is no relationship between the "cakes in a$s" on the menu and the fact that they are collecting poop-encrusted toilet paper.

    This is great. As if the Olympics wasn't allready the biggest farce in sports.

    And apparently the toilet paper feels like an iron curtain.
