Just received the address of a site showing an animation of how the radioactive cloud spread after the Chernobyl disaster. It’s dreadful, isn’t it? I suppose the situation in Japan is worse. Perhaps after 25 years they’ll let us know more about it…

    Wow, worrisome. Did it really affect everyday life in such far away place as Italy, France and Greece?

    That was a long time ago but, as far as I can remember, they were telling us to avoid drinking fresh milk and eating vegetables as radioactive waste was likely to settle on grass. Also, we were advised to take off our shoes at the entrance of our houses so that radioactive dust wouldn't spread in our house and avoid walking under the rain. We didn't feel anything at the time but I suppose that the increase in cancer incidents and other ailments, some of unknown origin, were due to that catastrophe and other ecological catastrophes we were never notified about. :-(
