Next to the main street leading to Chernobyl city, there are multiple smaller side streets leading through fields and woods to nearby villages.
We took one of those smaller side roads which brought us to our first destination:
An abandoned village.
Right after the stop the guide explained that we were just allowed to spread when no one is around us. The moment we wanted to spread... a car rode around the corner with policemen inside. They just checked our permits and left again.
So, we could finally spread and discover the few left houses from the inside on our own.
We found furniture, shoes, Vodka bottles and a newspaper form 1981.
Even though radiation was the same as normal background radiation in London, the nature seemed dead to me also since fall has started.
