Inside the Belarus Chernobyl Zone



More than 30 years after the Chernobyl disaster, it's common to see "field trips" into Pripyat, Ukraine. But the exclusion zone crosses the border of two nations, which wasn't really a thing before the fall of the Soviet Union. In Belarus, the hot zone is called the Polesie State Radioecological Reserve. A vlogger called bald and bankrupt hiked into the reserve to explore. He found abandoned buildings and a sad, untended cemetery. Then at about 13 minutes in, he meets two people who live alone in an abandoned village, who never left after the nuclear meltdown; a 92-year-old woman and her son Igor. They may live in the middle of nowhere, but they have retained their hospitality. -via reddit
