Winter Olympics 2014 Hotels Sochi: Russia Guests Report Poor Conditions; Beer Colored Water, Dead Bugs & More? [VIDEO]
It looks like there might be some danger coming along for the journalists at the Sochi 2014 Winter Olympics.
Daily Mail reported on Wednesday that journalists have checked into hotels in Sochi that were in poor and dangerous conditions. The journalists took their reporting to Twitter to reveal what they had to go through in Sochi.
"Bees in your honey, beer colored water, no flush toilets and the buzz abt #Sochi yuck factor today on @GMA," Matt Gutman from ABC wrote. He then posted a picture of a packet of honey with what appears to be a dead bee inside.
"This is the one hotel room @Sochi2014 have given us so far," Harry Reekie from CNN wrote. "Shambles. #cnnsochi" He then posted a photo of the hotel room with a curtain rod hanging down to the floor.
Reekie then wrote "CNN booked 11 rooms in one @Sochi2014 media hotel five months ago. We have been here for one day and only one room is available."
While the journalists are in a rough position at hotels, the weather there is currently a colder climate as well, according to The Verge. The weather in Sochi averages to about 52 degrees Fahrenheit during the winter, but the weather is currently colder to help prepare for the winter games.
According to local resident, Olga Mironova, the weather is cold, however it's not at the point of snow.
"There is almost no snow here- at the moment it's raining," Mironova said.
It is unclear how Sochi officials plan to bring snow into the equation, though Olympic officials did airlift snow in to cover the tops hay bales during the 2010 games in Vancouver.
