    Speaking of not taking a day off from work in over three years, six years ago this weekend was a lighter schedule when there was the Phoronix tour of the Chernobyl nuclear disaster site...

    You should release these pictures under the Creative Commons or something maybe. Maybe they could be useful for the Wikimedia Commons.

      I wouldn't be opposed to that.

        Also, get an assistant or something and have a break every now and then. Too much work WILL take its toll. I speak from experience...

              Americans do that. American tourists smile at graves, memorials, even concentration camps.

              That's just an explanation, I agree that it's disgusting, and that picture should be taken down. Place of tragedy is not disneyland.

                "we can always dream, so any suggestions for the next location? "

                Get couple of sailors from your local phoronix readers, rent a sailing yacht for a week and visit the islands of Kyklades, in Greece. There is much more beautiful views than a exploded nuclear plant. Mediterranean sea is warm to swim, there is no sharks, only slightly burning jellyfish and sea water is salty. Island have villages where you can overnight in a quest harbor , restaurants, night clubs etc. You find temples and ruins from ancient Greece too.

                  Americans are optimists. Chernobyl was tragedy and remains so. It is also triumph. Michael captured both.

                    Not even in Dodecanese anymore because they harmed both Greece's and Turkey's tourism. They are concentrated in Mitilini and then they are transported to mainland Greece and then back to Turkey.
