KTR- Riding through the past, riding through the horror

Maybe this must be considered as an off topic thread, but I thought it can be interesting -not only because the pictures, but because the girl and her Kawa 1100.

The site is in english but there are many grammar an vocabulary mistakes. Please, don't be rude with her

Let's go for a ride through Ghost Town

Is that were I think it is? That nucular power plant "explosion" or whatever? I think it was by/in Russia but I can't remember. I have a film of the aftermath on a "When Disaster Strikes" vid I have.

Yes, it is.
It was in Chernobyl, Ukraine.

I guess I must say there aren't any images of dead bodies. All the pictures show abandoned buildings an so in a city nearby the nuclear plant.

Probably Homer Simpsonsky was supervising the plant that April 26th (it was just 2 months after the Challenger's accident, in 1986).

That was one interesting ride!! I've been to Ukraine twice and stayed a total of 33 days there. I've been to Kyiv, Dnepropetrovsk, and Kharkiv. I loved all three...Dnep being my favorite.

I book-marked that page. Thanks!

Are you saying you'd have a better chance of surviving the radiation with someone there with you? A radiation sponge buffer if you will?
