The Colour of Courage

... is orange.
This man is painting his new house, after his old house - along with the rest of his village - was swept away in the the Asian Tsunami.
This man, and the thousands who, like him, decided to rebuild their homes and carry on, deserve to be among our "Interesting People".

Aceh, Indonesia.


  1. rebuilding can be so painful and yet so hope-driven....i can't even begin to imagine!

  2. Thank you for posting all these amazing pics from situations and places we don't get to visit!

  3. SS: Thanks!! Very much my pleasure :-)

    Moi: I totally agree. People have an incredible capacity to get themselves out of the deepest despair, and, in a sense, be grateful for what's left - or be grateful for just having survived.
    So they shake off the dust, and get moving..
