OLYMPICS: Wow. Journalists’ tweets convey shock, reality of incomplete accommodations, infrastructure
Journalists covering the Olympics are tweeting their experiences as they have arrived in Sochi this week. Two words: Not good.
Despite the enormous price tag of this Olympic games, some of the infrastructure-related tweets from journalists offer scenes of unfinished accommodations and utilities just two days from the Opening Ceremonies, and The Washington Post has plenty more.
We share them here not in jest, but as a reminder of the infrastructure resources that require proper planning, delivery and ongoing maintenance that we so easily take for granted.
Miss you, hot water in my hotel. You were great.
