8 Years ago...
December 26, 2012

On this day, 8 years ago, a Tsunami hit the Indonesian coastline of Banda Aceh. The estimated death toll for Indonesia alone was nearly 170,000 dead. Also 500,000 people were displaced, making the island the worst hit by the third most powerfull earthquake ever recorded.
The following picture was not included in the edit (
) I made at the time on the aftermath of the disaster. I only managed to arrive in Banda Aceh on January 7th, having been stuck in Bangkok for several days with visa issues.
