Time for Tourism

Posted 2011.04.26 17.44 in Uncategorized by Stephanie

If you’re looking for somewhere interesting and off-the-beaten-track to visit, maybe consider touring scenic Pripyat?

Ok I’m being a little bit tongue-in-cheek but in actual fact, this is something I would probably enjoy seeing. There’s a lot of history there, frozen in time for the past 25 years.

Here’s a photo that was taken almost exactly 25 years ago, give or take a day. I don’t want to think about how much radiation the photographer absorbed in this fly-over. Even today, visits near the plant involve radiation dosimeters and close monitoring.

Still, it would be a fascinating place to visit.

    I saw some photos of the near-by town and there’s trees growing threw people’s houses and stuff.

    Kinda cool. And sad… and deadly.
