After the Games: Photographs of Decaying Olympic Sites

This site, click title for link, shares pictures of former Olympic sites, both summer and winter varieties, in various states of decay. Sochi represents the spending of over $51 billion which is more than any other of the other venue's expenditures combined. Many people were displaced to make way for special event locations/structures. Patriotism seems to carry the day now that the games have started. But, collectively, they represent the world's ease at being a "throw away" society.
