Unfortunately everything in Russia is getting ass backwards and Olympic Sochi too.

Fifteen days are remaining before the opening of the Winter Olympics. Let's take a walk to Imeretinsky lowland that is where the Olympic Park is. We hope to see surrounds look like on the glossy leaflets but the reality is far more prosaic: newly built sidewalks are ruining, construction works in Sochi suburbs are never ending and daily trash mixed with heaps of debris are all around. Guess why there is neither a garbage container nor a trash bin near the Olympic Park area? For the security reasons!

Eventually, welcome to the place of Olympic level hospitality.

Acacia Street is half a kilometer from the Olympic Park. One of hundreds Olympic waste landfills.

This is a vain attempt to hide the actual state of things behind the fence sections.

That is not the outskirts of the city. This plot is adjacent to the new Olympic highway near Acacia Street.

A worker is carrying the tube to a trailer. They are probably going to watch the Olympics on TV.

That is the Olympic highway. The sidewalks area looks rather abandoned with opened hatches and the mud along the road.

The sidewalks surface is caving down and the only way to cope with that is patching.

These are the houses for Olympic volunteers. The sewer system is not yet assembled, though the project completion date is the spring of 2013.

The Olympic volunteers' houses are staying without electricity because the electric cable is not laid out yet.

It is dried because the grass lawns are planted on the stony ground.
