Chernobyl part 4 - Beds, Books, Bits - 03/15/2013

Walking round the city of Pripyat with so many buildings standing abandoned, the buildings of the city should be in theory a treasure trove of left artifacts from a previous era, sadly this is not the case. The fall of the Iron Curtain opened a window of opportunity for looters to storm the city and remove anything sellable, Pripyat was a wealthy city, Pripyat city was very unusual in that the occupants did not have to wait in line at the supermarket for hours, the Soviet Union food shortages did not affect the people of Pripyat, Pripyat was the model city with relative wealth compared to the rest of the Soviet Union. The Iron Curtain fell and no one guarded the city, it was a free for all and the looters stripped the city, building by building, room by room. - The looting of the buildings had the knock on effect of spreading the misery of the radioactive contamination far and wide outside the effected area. A few buildings do however do contain remains of personal effects and furniture The dolls of Pripyat Nursery are a little lost without their owners...       In the centre of Pripyat, the local high school does however hold some treasures from before the distaster       The language lab, had some interesting books in English, with the usual comment on the shit British weather.
