Three years after it was hit by a devastating tsumani, Aceh is slowly returning to normal, Time reports. The disaster killed more than 160,000 people in the Sumatran province and wiped out much of its infrastructure. In the years since, aid from all over the world has helped Aceh's people rebuild their towns and their lives.
The reconstruction effort has faced many hurdles but most of the roads and houses have now been rebuilt, and the capital, Banda Aceh, is bustling again. "I got stuck in a traffic jam last week but I really didn't mind," said a resident. "I was just happy to see the city has come back to life."
