News from Khao Lak

Last Updated: 24-Jan-2005, Jamie

I have just returned to Khao Lak for the first time since I left on the 23rd, to empty my old office. There is huge clean up operation going on at the moment but the devastation cannot be hidden. Some of the shops are soldiering on, but 90% of the town has now closed. The beach area once vibrant has been bulldozed and is now mostly bare earth. All one can hear is the distant sound of heavy machinery, the waves and bird song. For those of you who may not be sure whether to send in donations, please keep them coming. I have close friends DNA testing in Takuapa and the support for the locals is still needed. To my friends who survived, where ever you are. Chok Dii
