Sochi After Olympics 2014 - already broken

… to answer the question in the title in one word: quiet. I found this bunch of photos taken from Sochi after the circus has left town. I’m not sure what the plan was after the games, I heard some talk of using the area as a Formula 1 race track. But that seems a bit of a waste.

As you can see from these pics, the Olympic village of Sochi is now pretty much a ghost town. But not a spooky one, just a sad one…

Sochi used to be a hangout for actors, Kremlin officials and cosmonauts, including Putin himself. So I’m guessing there’s still going to be action somewhere in Sochi, just not where the Games were held. At least not now. I’m hoping this dog is just asleep and not dead…

Russia has a homeless problem just like every other country in the world. It would be nice to think they could convert at least some of these places into affordable housing.
