- Washington Post Social Media reporter Caitlin Dewey collected some of the hilarious and downright disgusting tweets from journalists who are arriving in Sochi to cover the Winter Olympics. Many early arrivals are finding that hotels are only partially finished. Below are some of the Tweets that Dewey collected and some other interesting social media out of Sochi:

- — Stacy St. Clair (@StacyStClair)Tue, Feb 04 2014 03:02:08My hotel has no water. If restored, the front desk says, "do not use on your face because it contains something very dangerous." #Sochi2014
- — Shaun Walker (@shaunwalker7)Tue, Feb 04 2014 10:13:37Still waiting for "preparations" on hotel room to finish. Hoping they're origami-folding toilet roll, rather than, say, putting the roof on.
- — Shaun Walker (@shaunwalker7)Wed, Feb 05 2014 02:24:33THIS IS AN EMERGENCY SITUATION, LEAVE THE BUILDING IMMEDIATELY. 6am Sochi wake up. Brief moment of terror as locked fire door.
- — Shaun Walker (@shaunwalker7)Tue, Feb 04 2014 17:41:45Got back to hotel. Lift broken after half day in use. Trekked up stairs. Door to my floor (that'd be the fire door) locked. Utter farce.
