Re: Motorcycle Girl in Chernobyl Dead Zone

I think it's a pretty good "collection" and an attractive fantasy. I would believe quite a bit of it as true. I don't think I'd have the guts to take even an escorted tour! It's good to hear from someone who has been there and can describe the desolation as well as the politics that allowed ordinary citizens to be exposed to such danger.

It's startling that people there have become used to using geiger counters and seem to be able to monitor their exposure to radiation to keep it at a "safe" level. I think I'd be very afraid.
