Ukraine: Trip to Chernobyl

MoldovAnn posts an account of her trip to the the Chernobyl Exclusion Zone: “…wild land, more or less untouched by humans for the past 20 years. […] It was breathtaking, even, to see the vast expanse of lush green. At the same time, though, you can never forget that you are standing on contanimated land. The constant chirp of the dosimeter, clicking off the ever increasing level of radiation, won’t let you forget.” Photos from the trip are here.
