So just the other day I was recommending the Showtime limited series, “The Loudest Voice” (it is SOOOO good) to a friend and he asked if I’d watched “Chernobyl” on HBO.I had not and seriously had not even thought about it as I consider that nuclear disaster similar to how I consider the “hole in the ground” at Hiroshima.
A LOT of lives were lost there. I don’t need to gaze upon a mass grave. This is a policy I adopted when I felt very uneasy at Pearl Harbor and then again at Ground Zero in NYC.
I’m just a little too sensative (about some things), I guess.
Anyway, ever since the HBO series, Chernobyl aired more tourists have flocked to the nuclear site to get a glimpse of the place. Because of that the president of Ukraine has announced he intends to turn the area around Chernobyl into a tourist hub.
“Chernobyl has been a negative part of Ukraine’s brand,” said former entertainer now President Volodymyr Zelensky. “The time has come to change this.”
According to Zelensky, the government will make green corridors, waterways, and checkpoints throughout the area. Filming restrictions will also be lifted in Chernobyl.
Would YOU like to visit? I’m out.
