Postcards from Pripyat

Int 2011, a friend organised a trip to Pripyat, which is the town which was evaculated during the Chernobyl disaster.

It was a surreal, eye opening and wonderful trip for many different reasons. I blogged about it here and Leonie has her view here.

British documentary maker Danny Cooke has just released a video "Postcards from Pripyat", which is the first time area has been filmed from the air. It's stunning, and really captures the place.
