“Russian Post” is the main postage service company. It often happens that many clients of the “Russian Post” are not satisfied with how they work.

A huge sarcophagus is being built at the Chernobyl nuclear power plant. When the work is finished in 2015, the great arch structure will be taken to the existing “Shelter” on rails and fixed over it. During the first stage of assembly works about 5000 tons of steel was lifted at the height of twenty two meters (72 ft).
When fully assembled the sarcophagus dimensions are 257 x 164 x 110 meters (843 x 538 x 361 ft). Its total weigh is going to be about 20 000 tons.
This place is overgrown with legends. Locals say that it’s the whole net of mines through which one can get from one settlement to another; people haven’t come to one of the mines for 80 years, as they say. Besides, a huge shelter was allegedly built in case of nuclear war in those mines.
But we are going to come down and see the mines with our own eyes.

Sometimes other drivers can revenge you if you are not too polite on the roads. But even if you don’t do anything wrong you can make others mad as well. For example a bottle can be thrown at your car or something.
