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. ┬áSpecial 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.
