The bathroom of a brick home in Sumatra partially survived the tsunami. This photo was taken by Dr. Jose Borrero of the University of Southern California Tsunami research group. Borrero traveled to various locations throughout Sumatra following the tsunami to collect data and take photographs. Among the places he visited were Kreung Raya, Banda Aceh, Lhoknga, Panteraja, Lhokkreut, Lhokseumawe and Idi. Travel to these locations was made possible by grants from the Earthquake Engineering Research Institute and the National Science Foundation. Logistical support and support on the ground were made possible by the National Geographic Society.
