Swimming in Sri Lanka - Rebuilding Weligama - February 2005
I have been swimming in the ocean for the first time since the tsunami. For a long time i had no desire to go. The water had all been churned up by the waves and was dirty. I have also become more aware of all the raw sewage that ends up in the ocean - and the speed with which even a small wound can become infected.
