Sochi half-bathrooms: True or false?

Lizzie O'Leary Feb 6, 2014

We here at Marketplace are never ones to let a good corporate or government fail go by.

BUT.

Some of those viral pictures of half-toilets and Russian menus translated into words we can’t say are amusing, but they’re not from Sochi, where the Winter Olympics start today.

Sochi appears to be plagued with hotel problems and questions about the safety of some events, but sometimes viral humor just proves a little too good to be true.

There’s a lot happening in the world.  Through it all, Marketplace is here for you. 

You rely on Marketplace to break down the world’s events and tell you how it affects you in a fact-based, approachable way. We rely on your financial support to keep making that possible.
