Thanks for the link. I can understand her fascination and love (?) for a place that has seen such terrible devastation. Great pictures and now I'm stuck with a song in my head about the disaster...

Elena's site was awe-inspiring. I am concerned that she mentioned purchasing uncontaminated fuel for her trip. I wonder what she did with the fuel after her trip-had it become contaminated during her excursion? What about herself and the bike she was riding..
I also got a kick out of her taking a guide with her to a highly intensive radiation site who had "great taste in shoes"!
The kindergarten photos were so sad.
And the teacher's notes stated that the Saturday walk had been cancelled due to "unforeseen contingency"....
This could happen anywhere...
There is a nuclear power site about 50 miles from where I live, and it is decaying...
I live in New Jersey...
crud...
