Indonesia – Sumatra – Aceh - Lambaru Madjid – Kamaruzaman, 32-year-old fisherman is collecting mussels during the low tide where it used to be dry land before the tsunami submerged 200 meters of coastline under the ocean forever.  “Villagers here have experience with big waves, but these were huge” he remembers, walking through the low-tide-mud to look for mussels. “I realized it was a disaster when I saw the destroyed houses on the coastline”.
