The Aral Sea was the world’s fourth largest lake, but also the site of one of its worst man-made disasters. In the 1960s, a massive irrigation project diverted its water elsewhere, causing the lake to shrink and eventually dry up. But in recent years, thanks to large-scale restoration projects, its northern part has sprung back to life. Michal Bardavid visited the town of Aralsk, and found out that as water slowly fills the lake once again, hopes are seeping into the hearts of residents living in this thriving fishing community.
