Ukraine

So I've been wanting to go here since before I was actually into exploring and had began to think that it was never going happen then almost by accident it did and before I knew it we were on the plane to Kyiv.
Now I had been warned to expect Kyiv to be like the wild west so with some apprehension I left the airport with Fragglehunter and Zero81 and haggled for a taxi to take us to our hotel where we would meet Homosovieticus for a wander round Kyiv at night (really? after everything I'd heard? we would be robbed and killed inside 30 mins and an explorer with my looks would probably be sold as a sex slave to rich and powerful ladies all over eastern Europe)

You know what? Kyiv was lovely, I mean really nice and good god it was cheap after 2 hours of wandering it was time to eat and drink and all four of us did just that untill about midnight for a grand total of £30????

I was liking this place lots.

next morning we were picked up and driven into the zone where we would spend the next 4 days.

I took well over 1000 pics so I've had to be brutal with my selection.

Pripyat schools (too many to name) but one of them virtually unseen.

Good selection mate, very impressive and lots of detail. There's clearly plenty still to see here, maybe next year..

Such atmospheric photos! An amazing set you have there Tbolt...you lucky lucky bugga!!! That gas mask room is pretty haunting, love the shots.

I will knit you some latex lederhosens for your next trip there mate, you're sure to get kidnapped by a sex slave or arrested, either way it will be memorable:surprise:
