Chernobyl + Kiev 2016

I was selected to speak at SQL Saturday in Kiev, and I decided to take the opportunity to make an excursion that I skipped on my visit to Ukraine two years earlier: going to the Chernobyl exclusion zone. It was a very interesting trip where we got to see the reactor buildings and the abandoned city of Pripyat. We also got a glimpse of the nature that has largely been left on its own for the last 30 years. The main bulk of the pictures are from the Chernobyl area, but there also some pictures from Kiev at the end.
