Photo journal: Sri Lankan tsunami survivor
Lost friend

This is what remains of my house. It's the second house from the sea which is why part of it is still standing. Even now I can't imagine how we survived.

A young girl, Kanchana, lived in the house next to mine. We were good friends, having grown up together. She was unable to get away and drowned. I still find it hard to believe.
