Kindergarten "The Willow", Pripyat - (Chernobyl Exclusion Zone), Ukraine - October 2016
Still on our fourth and final day in The Zone, and during our trip around the shopping districts of Pripyat; I explored this little Kindergarten. Time was running short now and this one was rushed.
Still, sadly on my trusty iPhone because the DSLR had packed up due to a very wet day 2 days before.
This one was quite an eye opener when you sit down and think about all the kids taking the radiation in.
Lots of toys scattered about and even potties on the shelves inside. Decay had set in big time here; which was no surprise as it was surrounded by brush and trees!
Lots of "set up" shots in this one unfortunately, but it was enjoyable enough!
The sad thing is, the time it took to evacuate Pripyat. These children could have been taking life changing hits of radiation in this very kindergarten on the morning of the 26th April 1986; the government did not evacuate till the 27th....
As always Guys, thanks for looking :-)
