chernobyl tourism

New Sight in Chernobyl's Dead Zone: Tourists - New York Times (or mirrored at urban_decay to avoid the login): [N]ow there are tourists, participating in what may be the strangest vacation excursion available in the former Soviet space: the packaged tour of the Chernobyl exclusion zone, scene of the worst civilian disaster of the nuclear age.

The article mentions (you may recall the photos from a post in April 2004); apparently the whole 'biking through the wasteland' thing was a hoax and the girl took her photos while taking this tour. Even if the backstory is a hoax, the photos are still great.
