A link took me to Elena Filatova’s website, Ukrainian biker-girl, and one of the few people who have explored the hinterlands of Chernobyl. It has been a couple of years since I looked at these pages and there is new material. It is beautiful, literate, and tragically sad.

I wonder if I was in the same situation as the evacuatees whether I would return to find my cat even though it would kill me like it has killed those who returned to Chernobyl. It would lie on my conscience if I did not.
