Pages and pages and videos of a woman in her 30's that returns to Chernobyl (usually by motorcycle) and surrounding areas to document the ruins of the vacant cities, effects on the habitants, environment, etc.

 I didn't get a chance to read through the entire site, but what I did read I found to be very interesting. I bookmarked it so I could go back and read it in it's entirety. I just love human interest type stories. Thanks for posting it.

I thought her taste of video/cinematics in her videos and music selection was incredible, as well.

And for the history buffs, her work on 'the serpents' wall' is quite interesting, too. ;D Nothing like digging up a live WWII bouncing betty and defusing it with with a knife!  :o

I think that is a hoax.

I can't find the original article I read, but here's a blog article from  Neil Gaiman.  about it.

Algae, if you could find the original source that would be much appreciated.  It's hard to tell which "blog" is telling the truth without much evidence.

It appears to have been an e-mail sent to someone on this mailing list, reposted on Gaiman's blog.

A detailed thread at the Urban Explotation Resource.

Here's a pretty good summary.
