In this photo dated Saturday, Feb. 2, 2013, the Iceberg skating arena seen at night at the Russian Black Sea resort of Sochi, with just one year till the opening ceremony of the winter Olympic 2014 Sochi Games. The Black Sea resort of Sochi is a vast construction site sprawling for nearly 40 kilometers (25 miles) along the coast and 50 kilometers (30 miles) up into the mountains, with no escape from the clang and clatter of the construction works, the drilling, jack-hammering and mixing of cement.
