With the 2014 Olympic Winter Games in Sochi drawing closer and closer, journalists and fans have started arriving in the city — for some, the reception has been ... interesting. Their experiences, pictures and observations have spawned a hashtag (#SochiProblems) and even a handle (@SochiProblems). Unfortunately, quite a bit of it isn't pretty.

According to Olympic organizers, only six of the nine media hotels are ready, and the rooms that are available are in rough shape. The journalists that are able to get at least somewhat situated have been staying true to themselves and reporting whatever's available and newsworthy. In this case, it's the "unique" experiences they've been having so far in Sochi. Take a look:
