The way home

On a boat to a village in Bangladesh, I met this woman coming from the market. The boats were old, wooden ferries shuttling people back and forth on their hour-long journeys. She told us to do something about river erosion caused by flooding, where whole sections of the banks in this shifting delta could disappear overnight. We had no answers.
