Late Night Comforts of Home

Olympic Coverage
Olympic news reports obviously usually center around the athletes, but what about the people bringing you those reports?

Every day journalists use the International Broadcast Center to get their jobs done.You might even call the IBC a second home for those traveling to cover the games.

But downstairs, underneath all the work space, a sort of makeshift shopping center exists to help both athletes and those bringing your their stories get what they need.

Maybe it’s a hair cut, or groceries? You’ll even find a McDonalds, dry cleaning, and souvenirs.

Liz Clark says she is covering her seventh Olympics and is currently working for the Washington Post.

“As a reporter we send probably 18 hours a day at the venue weather at a competition venue or working here at the main media center. When you get to your hotel, its nice to have some water and juices there too, so its great that you can come in and knock it all out and take it home,” said Clark.

But what if you need a little something more? With it being the month of February, you also have to be able to get candies and flowers for your sweetheart. You can do it right here, but be prepared to pay in rubles, not American dollars. Whatever seems to be on the “help me” list can almost certainly be found right here.

They also have a post office and a way to exchange your American dollars for rubles.
