Daily update from Ukraine 9/11/12
Today I made it the the Chernobyl Memorial Museum. It is small but very informative and it worth a visit by anyone who comes to Kyiv.
In England we know a lot about this part of Ukraine’s history because it affected us and personally I am interested in this area for a few reasons:
One: It happened a few weeks before I was born, so it is living history.
Two: It is the biggest disaster of its kind.
Three: It is connected to the Urbex movement, which I have been apart of for many years.
Each time I read about this, the shock is always the same and I was not even connected to the devastation. I can not even imagine the heartache felt by the people of Chernobyl and surrounding villages but I am proud to see that it is talked about and not hidden away like a dirty secret. We can but learn from our inevitable mistakes.
I will not be updating my blog tomorrow as I will be in a rural village but I will return to the city late Sunday night and if I am not to exhausted I will write up a two day blog.
