Christian's Journal Entry for Day 26 : We awoke and as usual ate breakfast before breakfast because we didn’t understand what was going on. so we ate two times but that was okay because I was not a huge meal. After we went to the assembly room in the centre where we found that there was a concert planned for us. We were greeted by the mayor and a Ukrainian choir with bread and salt. It was really touching and Emma couldn’t hold back her tears as the choir started to sing. We walked to the front and listened to a song before we were greeted and informed about the town by the mayor and local specialists.

They all gave a speech on the good things and some surprising stats that really gave a good impression on what the real problems were in the town....click here to read more

Emmanuelle's Journal Entry for Day 26 : We woke up early this morning and decided to go shopping for breakfast. As usual, we chose bread and chocolate and ate on the porch.

By 8.30 our translators were back. They told us we were going to have breakfast. If I had known!!A hardy breakfast was waiting for us, my stomach was full but the cook had gone through so much trouble to make pancakes that I could not refuse it.

We toured the centre, saw beautiful frescoes and paintings connected to Chernobyl catastrophe. Powerful art! Ukrainian people are amazing artists and creators......click here to read more
