That was really big issue even in Finland as i was in the ship already and go checking all the way in Poland those days, every day we dock in Gdansk, Gdynia about 1200Km away from Chernobyl and all ex. Soviet ports from Estonia all the way to Denmark....
but pictures what i have not seen at all and most likely not publicized very openly,,,,
I got courious about what Lightemup said and had a google and found this .. on ( The Museum of Hoaxes )Motorcycle Trip Through Chernobyl
A month or two ago a woman named Elena posted a travelogue on the web about her solitary motorcycle ride through the deserted area around Chernobyl. With all the eerie pictures she took of the abandoned, irradiated 'ghost town,' her travelogue quickly became one of the most linked-to sites on the net. Now there are accusations that her travelogue wasn't completely honest. Apparently she didn't go around alone on a motorcycle. She went in a car with her husband and a friend. Elena defends herself, admitting that much of her story was 'more poetry' than reality, but noting that most of it was still reality. I'm inclined to side with her. The pictures of Chernobyl, and what it's become, were real. How much does it really matter that she made them more interesting by wrapping them in a tale about a solitary motorcycle ride?
