Russia doesn’t have many places for surfing. Still, this sport is gaining popularity. Here are some recent photos of surfing in Sochi.
Here are a few photos from the Olympic village in mountain cluster I took a couple of days ago.
As my hometown is preparing to host the Olympics in a few months, we are trying to open up to the World by installing bi-lingual signs around the city. I collect some special translation jobs on this website: stayinsochi.com
One of the buildings in Roza Khutor resort in Krasnaya Polyana is designed to mimic the main railroad station in Sochi:
Railroad station in Sochi’s Central district.
Web surfing takes me places…
Yesterday I found out there’s a computer virus Virus.DOS.Sochi.703, which apparently was dedicated to Sochi’s 2002 Olympics bid — the virus contains the text *Ks&I* Sochi Olympic Games 2002.
While trying to get more information on this I stumpled on a real biologic virus called Dobrava-Sochi virus (DOBV-Ap) – separate lineage of Dobrava virus found in and around Sochi.
And then on the same search I stumbled on a fun club mix by DJ Virus — Sochi 2014. I liked it, so I’m embedding it here :)
Sea storm that has been rocking the shore in and around Sochi has damaged part of new cargo port which is being constructed to support Olympic construction projects, flipped a construction boat that was used in building the port, and broke Moldavian cargo ship in half.
Following is a photo of the «Aras-I» cargo ship that broke in half.

The couple of videos below show some of the destruction as it was happening.

I don’t know when this happened, but it appears that some not-too-long time ago Google Maps updated their sattelite images of Sochi. Previously they did not have high resolution pics of anything but parts of Central district. Now they do.
