The Danger Zone
PRIPYAT ghost town (1970-1986) is a very interesting story. It's a photo journal, written in broken english by a Ukrainian woman who likes to ride her motocycle fast, real fast. The catch is that the best place she has found to do this is in the city of Pripyat, the ghost town near Chernobyl. In her own words:
"a story about town where one can ride fast, with no stoplights, no police, no danger to hit some cage or some dog.."

It is a very interesting story. The narative is disjointed and the English spotty but you can tell that this is a real passion and quite a bit of effort was put into it. It was also updated very recently. Her father is a nuclear physicist has worked in the zone for 18 years doing research.

It is also facinating to see pictures of inside the "dead zone" taken by average people and not scientists or government officials. Also, many of her pictures are striking and eloquent. A worthwhile read.
