  • We were at a similar memorial on Sri Lanka. Basically, it is the same. I feel for the people who have lost someone, their homes, and the misery they went through. I’m not sure though, if this is the best way to make tourists aware of this disaster. The entire thing didn’t feel exactly right, but somehow, you do have to visit when you’re there. If you come here in the evening, the boat is not lighted. So, you don’t really see it that well. The boat was carried by the waves from the water all the way to its current position on the land. Quite a distance.
