Two toilets - level 2
Using a toilet in Sochi may not be the most comfortable thing to do. Especially, if there’s somebody using another toilet, which is only a meter from you, and not separated by a partition.
The double toilets in Sochi have been seen and discussed recently a lot. There was a lot of activity on Twitter when somebody uploaded the first picture. It prompted questions about how public money was being spent, and whether it was being flushed down the toilet.
The Winter Olympics attracted a lot of publicity which hasn’t been positive for the country. This is the nothing the Russian authorities could possibly want.
Difficult words: partition (thin wall), prompt (cause), whether (if), flush down the toilet (to waste something, such as money).
