Reporter in Sochi Told by Hotel Not to Allow Water to Touch Her Face
The city of Sochi is not quite ready for the Olympics, according to those who have already arrived in the Russian coastal town.
Many of the hotels are not yet finished, or are severely lacking in amenities such as, you know, water.
Stacy St. Clair of the Chicago Tribune tweeted that her hotel informed her that she should not allow water to touch her face because it contains something "very dangerous."
My hotel has no water. If restored, the front desk says, "do not use on your face because it contains something very dangerous." #Sochi2014 — Stacy St. Clair (@StacyStClair) February 4, 2014
Water restored, sorta. On the bright side, I now know what very dangerous face water looks like. #Sochi #unfiltered pic.twitter.com/sQWM0vYtyz

Meanwhile, the Canadian hockey team will be staying in less than luxurious quarters when they arrive in Russia, based on the below picture from The Canadian Press reporter Stephen Whyno.

But hey, at least sleeping three to a room will help build camaraderie. [h/t @EDSBS]
