Palu - The South African delegation of the Gift of the Givers visited the tsunami-hit Anjangan Pantai Talise beach on Thursday.
As cars drive through the beach’s main road, JI Rajamoili Road, locals and tourists all walk and ride in scooters with their phones in hand, to take a picture or two.
A yellow bridge which connects the beach area to the outer suburbs was destroyed by the tsunami, along with roads.
Office buildings along the shoreline took a violent beating from the tsunami. At least three buildings had cars trapped inside, some inside the frame of the building.
The effects of the tsunami were felt beyond the beach, at least a kilometre into the area, destroying hundreds of buildings and houses in the process.
