Postcards from Chernobyl


A recent photo of abandoned equipment near Chernobyl. Good price if you’re in the market, but it probably glows in the dark.
Google maps are awesome.

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:

There have been persistant rumors that people have been stealing parts off the trucks, tanks, etc. stored at Chernobyl and selling them in the ex-USSR or as far south as Turkey...I hope not, because the people buying that stuff will also get cancer for free.
