Postcards from Pripyat, Chernobyl

The following video is now trending on the web, you may have seen it already. Amongst all its the striking features, my first thought was about the new greenery which is now covering the town. So many new trees and plants growing, some clearly in cracks of the concrete and asphalt. It seemed appropriate to post it here, an example of so much regeneration, but not in a forest, not a natural environment.

Post-apocalyptic fictional scenarios sometimes predict a ravaged desert, a wasteland. What if all human beings will disappear instantly? This video should remind us about the power of vegetation and how nature is constantly trying to paint (most of) this Earth in green color.
