Biking through Chernobyl
| Elena who hails from the Ukraine, notes early in her commentary that Chernobyl, in her native langauge, is "Wormwood" a substance referred to in the Christain Bible's Book of Revelations, and signifying the end times |
On her tour she shows us a land virtually uninhabited, with decaying buildings and well tended highways | There is no place to buy gasoline, however, so travelers had better be well stocked before heading into the area | She says the landscape is divinely eerie
| Who could disagree ? |
"...Some tourists companies have been trying to arrange tours in this town, but the first group of tourists found the silence unnerving and downright SPOOKY. And it is. They charged 1200 hryvnas for a 2 hour excursion and after some 15 minutes, they wanted to flee to the outside world. The silence here is deafening..."
I have purposely limited providing my own readers with only one photo link to Elena's travelogue | You really ought to see it for yourself : http://www.angelfire.com/extreme4/kiddofspeed/
