25th Anniversary Of Chernobyl Nuclear Accident – Part 1
These are the photos of the ghost city of Prypiat.
The city was abandoned since 25 years ago because of the Chernobyl nuclear power plant accident on April 26, 1986.
The city used to be very nice and beautiful but now it looks so sad, ugly and scary.
I think that we should stop building new nuclear power plant because it can be very, very dangerous.
(Please click here for my post on ‘Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant Disaster’).
Nuclear power plant can cause dangerous nuclear radiation if a disaster happen and a big area has to be abandoned for a long, long time.
Cool Off In The Hot Weather-Photos
It is a very hot summer almost everywhere.
Just a few months ago, it was freezing in Florida, U.S.A.!
Now Japan, Serbia, Germany, Italy, U.S.A.,Hungary, Russia and Poland are being hit by very hot weather and heat wave.
And people get into the rivers, fountains, beaches, sprinkles and others places where there are water to cool off 🙂
