Sochi says goodbye to the Olympics

This past Sunday Sochi hosted a farewell show to the 2014 Winter Olympics. This year’s Winter Olympics is estimated to be the most expensive Olympics held to date, the price tag being 51 billion dollars; the second most expensive being 40 billion dollars in the Olympics hosted by Beijing in the summer of 2008. The construction and renovations took 7 years in Sochi to complete. In the farewell show Russian made fun of their mistake that happened earlier when one of the Olympic Rings didn’t expand, they recreated in the farewell show. These Olympics were to help the world see that Russia is a friendly country and to get people to visit.
