Unusual Men’s Toilets at Olympic Venue in Sochi, Russia, Causing a Stir
— Steve Rosenberg (@BBCSteveR) January 20, 2014
If you’re planning to attend the Winter Olympic Games in Sochi, Russia, be prepared for anything.
Steve Rosenberg, a BBC journalist in Moscow, snapped this photo of a restroom in Sochi and the reaction has been priceless. With suggestions from a new competitive pooping category in the Games to images of what conversations would be like, these restrooms are getting a lot of attention. If you need to go, you’re not getting any privacy in Sochi.
Russia has spent millions preparing for the Winter Games, so images like this lead some to wonder where the money is being spent. Not only are men not getting any privacy in this restroom, they aren’t even each given their own toilet paper roll. You better hope you grabbed enough before you sat down, or you’ll be asking the guy next to you for a hand.
Would you be comfortable using a restroom like this?
