Of course the TV is covering this disaster in horrifying detail. The video is amazing.

Obviously we have a special concern for our friend, but we cannot ignore the suffering of everyone who has been directly affected. At present, the estimated death toll is 23,000 with a strong possibility that number may double.

Just awful.


I'm not short. I'm concentrated awesome!

Still turns my stomach.

Also my girlfriends sister, left UK for Thailand for 2 weeks, before staying in NZ for 3-4 weeks.
Left them a bit worried, that maybe they had arrived early, or were in Phuket or somewhere else affected.

Shocking to see the number of people hurt.

Let's again hope Don and Leela are safe and well, and telling their stories to the local people. Anyone checked newspaper photographic accreditations? Maybe he took some footage. Keeping positive. :)

Dear Marie and all my other friends,

We just arrived back in Hong Kong a few hours ago and thanks to a personal email from Marie, I thought I should check this forum before retiring. What a surprise -- I obviously have many more friends that I imagined. :)

We were fortunate to see the wave in time to grab the camera bag, race for a stairway and get to the second floor before the entire first floor of the hotel was destroyed. The aftermath and the trip back has been a little exhausting., so I will have to write more later but I wanted you all to know how much your thoughts and good wishes mean to us.

Take care... and many thanks.

Don

It is so good to hear from you and know that you and Leela are home save and sound. What a harrowing experience it must have been. God bless that all our prayers were answered. This forum truly is one big family..

Very glad to hear you are safe Don.

As Sandy said the forum is one big family, and I am sure many up us can truly say you have been in our thoughts when seeing images of the tragedy on the news.

And I'm pleased to hear you saved your camera bag too.


If in doubt, I shut up...
