Drop a line in the water

Roots make a neat ledge for for string fishing

Roots make a neat ledge for for string fishing

One reason I came to the Andamans was to pursue a story about the legacy of the 2004 tsunami. That unfortunately fell through for a number of reasons: language barriers, logistics, me being sick in the middle of nowhere. But I did manage this photo.

Beaches in the southern parts of the islands are lined with trees stripped bare or knocked down by the 30-foot wall of water that struck after the December 26, 2004, earthquake near Indonesia.

This one in Wandoor, South Andaman, on a beach far away from tourist hotspots, has become a handy fishing perch.
