Over the span of the Games, Science World was turned into Russky Dom, a place for Russia to showcase what people can expect from the 2014 Olympic Winter Games being held in Sochi. Science World (or The World Of Science, as it were) will be back in business on March 11th when they re-open but in the coming days I'd like to share images of a few of the artifacts from Russky Dom with you.
The first is V.I.A.'s youngest blogger, Arlo, kickin' it with Cheburashka! He's not the official Olympic mascot for Sochi 2014 but, as one of the Russians there told me, he stands for "Russian Olympic dream". That's all they said when I asked who he was: "Russian Olympic dream". Fair enough, he is incredibly awesome and I bought a plush version and a t-shirt with his likeness on the front soon after I shot this photo.
