The Opening Ceremonies for the XXII Olympic Games in Sochi, Russia, are tonight. Well, actually, at about 10.00 am St Louis time, but…y’know, time zones and such.
To say that putting these Games together has been a mad dash right up to the veeeeeery last second would not be an understatement. In fact, many, MANY of the accommodations are still not finished, not for guests, but more importantly, not for the athletes! It seems privacy is also a different kind of concept from culture to culture, as well, which is to be expected.
Let me also say that there are a LOT of issues surrounding these Games. I have an awfully WEIRD feeling about the whole thing. Something just seems….off. Does it? Or am I being out of my mind again? Really, at this point, it’s a coin toss!
So, as journalists and competitors started arriving in Sochi, being that this is 2014, they took note of their surrounding and immediately got either the shrieking horrors or the giggles and took to Twitter to post pictures and comments.
