The world is watching Sochi for Russia’s first Winter Olympics. Despite recent headlines, it’s going to be a great event!
As an Atlantan in Sochi, I’ve seen first-hand the pre-Games concerns about security, housing and final prep. For every naysaying report there are 10 tales of things gone right.
Sochi’s Southern hospitality is similar to y’all’s – they love and serve special tea, delicious and locally grown. They have big highways and the venues are spectacular! One difference: Hometown sports teams likely will stay in Sochi’s new Olympic Stadium for decades longer than the Braves; but then, the venue is already suburban.
