Very interesting tour of one of the greatest tragedies in history.

What surprised me the most is that 3000 people work within the exclusion zone. Often on 4 day shifts they are in contruction, engineering and science.

There are also some people aged in late 70s who have moved back to thier old land.

Another surprise was the missle tracking station which is almost a kilometre long and was decommissioned after the accident.

The sacrifice of the firefighers and workers who were conscripted to clearn up is just awful – there are a few good documentaries on youtube about them.

Thanks Solo East travel for making sure I made it out there, highly recommend.
