It is weird to see an entire city... parks, buildings, rides, all there but abandoned.

That was a great read! My buddy live a couple hundred kilometers from there when everything went down and he said the sky looked like it had millions of lil stars flashing all over the place.

Thank you for sharing. It's so aweful, what their government did to them. They didn't even know. I remeber seeing an article about women who were pregnant during and after the time of the accident. All of the babies were born without an arm. Can't remeber if it was left or right. I just remember a picture of a line up of all these children, all missing the same limb. The world knew before the people who lived next to it. Very sad. My husband and I were talking about it. Our nuclear plants use a lot of safety measures. If you look at ours, the reactors are encased in cement. Theirs were simply inside of a factory. Almost unbelievable.

Wow. That was a very interesting sit to go through. I'm sure most of the world has forgotten about Chernobyl, but not the people affected directly. Makes other things seem kind of insignificant sometimes.
