Around town, and in the Olympic areas, there are still projects and construction. That's not all that surprising, as most of the venues are temporary or easily assembled/disassembled venues that can be used over and over again. It reminds me of the days before the county fair, all the rides and carnival equipment get rolled into town - obviously, this is just a bit larger than the county fair.

|Not the prettiest stadium, but it gets the job done!|
This is the main entrance to the stadium. I usually am transported by car and enter in another location, so this was actually the first time I went to the front of the stadium since I took a bus. There are many armored soldiers surrounding the stadium, and I have a great picture of one carrying a bazooka of all things! Learning my lessons from the Russia, I will refrain from posting military photos until I know it's safe!
Today's teaser - hmmm...it's getting close to dress rehearsals! We're soon going to have to give up the use of our phones now that we will begin full runs, so I have some great teasers saved up and ready to go. We're not supposed to take pictures ourselves (selfies)/workers/actors - people in general - but somehow I got this one approved...
