When I arrived, the island had just gone through a tsunami, but this family, like so many others, has no choice but to go on with life as though nothing had happened.
For eight dollars, I bought a big plate of BBQ meat, fries and salad. I talked extensively with the bar owners about their experience. After hearing their stories, I joined the Red Cross for a few days, as a volunteer. I’ll never forget the destructive power of the sea.
