A small cemetery of Old Believers, a purist sect that branched out of the Russian Orthodox in the 17th century, is right in the middle of Olympic Park at the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia, Monday, Feb. 10, 2014. It goes completely unnoticed by passers-by who walk along a round plot of land surrounded by a tinted glass fence and lined with almost identical fir-trees. (AP Photo/Mark Carlson)

"No one is going to believe this but we just got stuck in an elevator. Ask @BOBSLEDR and @Crippsee who were there..."
