Episode 119: Do Not Blame The Sea

In 2004, the Tsunami that hit Sri Lanka killed 8 members of this small fishing family. And yet today, they still fish (either on stilts or in a boat) because they have to do it to survive. The family lives in a small hut with a back “window” that opens onto the ocean — the same sea that gives life also takes it away.  Special Thanks to Intrepid Travel.

      The story of the mother who follows her son to the sea every day brought tears to my eyes. Growing up on a small island in Hawaii, we were raised living off of the sea, and I see my mom in that woman.
