Temporary barracks at Lloknga, about nine miles down the coast from Banda Aceh. About 70,000 people still live in temporary barracks like this one. The rest have either found shelter with relatives or moved into new homes built by NGOs and the government with some of the billions donated after the tsunami. Those who remain in the barracks will likely stay there for some time. Many of them either have no land to build on, or are people who rented before and have nowhere to go.
