Dave Brockington has a post up at LGM about Chernobyl tourism. (I'll be damned: spell-check likes Chernobyl.)
One of our party wanted to go, but our schedule was full and some of us were opposed, myself included. I had no wish to become irradiated or have to replace everything I was wearing. The lure of of inhabited land turned feral - not just returned to nature but poisonous - remains pretty powerful though, and I still regret not going, much as I know if I was presented with the chance again I still wouldn't take it.
Below is a picture from the terrific-by-Ukrainian-standards Chernobyl museum in Kiev (photography not allowed, dumb tourists cut some slack). These men who look so pleased at their triumph over the reactor died shortly thereafter of course.
