Oh, the Sovs-er, Russians have plenty of nice places, but they are for the Vlasti, not the little people..

South Korea’s hosting would have been interesting....within easy range of the midget.

Sochi has a surprisingly warm climate for the latitude; winter temperatures rarely fall much below freezing. The average summer high temperature ranges between +26 °C (78.8 °F) and +32 °C (89.6 °F) with occasional extreme heat in some interior locations exceeding +40 °C (104 °F)

Somehow palm trees don't exactly evoke the winter olympics for me
