Musings in the life of an internist, cardiologist and cardiac electrophysiologist.
I personally visited the Chernobyl area for two days in June 2006 with a friend who is a former resident of Pripyat. We toured the Chernobyl Plant (including the Reactor 4 control room), several of the abandoned villages, and Pripyat. I have posted a photo journal of my trip at:My Journey to Chernobyl: 20 Years After the Disaster
MarkR-Wow. Your pics and narrative are equally surreal and almost eerie. I think your narrative at the end sums it up nicely:"I do feel as if the Zone has truly changed me, though I find it impossible to explain how. Perhaps these lyrics from American artists Huns & Dr. Beeker can describe it for me:Gone the homes, the gardens and the playgroundsGone the souls who made their livings hereThey say this place will always be a ghost townIt will be for at least six hundred years"--From: "Ghost Town (For the Victims of Chernobyl)"© 2006 Hunsbusher/EricksonThanks for sharing.
Interesting and moving... and frightening.
