Within a few minutes the blast from the meltdown explosion spread radiation across the country side. Those who didnt die from the radiation were evacuated away from the danger zone, leaving their cities, towns, and belongings behind. Time stopped in the city of Chernobyl foever.
Today the city and most of the country side sits as it had on the day of the meltdown. Its a silent place. So silent that its almost scary.
A friend found me this link and said to read it and I did. Its the journey of one person into this area of silence. And its recorded in pictures. It's something else entirely. Check it out, click on 'begin'.
I think it's important we remember this. Check out the pictures, it's eerie. I couldn't imagine what it would be like to actually be there. Anyone who has seen 28 Days Later will be reminded of the scenes of the movie in the pictures taken.
Time stands still in Chernobyl.
