Eastern in Ukraine 25-29.3.2005

We spent Eastern holidays of 2005 in Kiev Ukraine and visited Tshernobyl area power plant and Pripjat ghost town. 9 of the guys have been traveling together before and undersigned participated as a rookie.

Route was Helsinki - by ferry to Tallinn - Kiev - Tallinn - Helsinki. Everything went smoothly as usual despite all the warnings of pickpockets etc in the former USSR.

Leaving Helsinki
Waiting for the ferry
Here we're waiting for the bus that would take us from the harbor to the airport. Surprisingly the bus left from another platform and we ended up using a taxi. Maybe some of the "Lonkeros" during the ferry trip had their part in the play..
Tallinn airport, waiting again.
