At the last check point right before Pripyat we had the last chance to pee for a couple of hours (otherwise we'd have to pee in the wild, in a radioactive zone !). Then we were going to the hospital where the fire fighters were brought in after the accident, suffering from an acute radiation dose.
The feeling in my tummy got weirder, knowing that we were walking around at the same place, where the first people with radiation poisoning were brought in.
Also knowing that the clothes they were wearing are still in the basement - not protected at all... Just lying around because no one dares to touch it.
Next to the entrance we realised someone starring at us from the inside of the hospital at the upper floor. Really creepy! It turned out that he was a tourist from another group.
Closer to the entrance our guide asked us to wait outside of hospital due to much security being present in this area. So, he went inside alone to get something very special but dangerous: A piece of fire fighter clothes!
He asked us to keep safe distance and to give him a Geiger counter.
The highest measurement he got was around 240 micro Sievert. That was so far the scariest moment for I think all of us.
