I do find it interesting that tourists are sitting on that beach today. I suppose they had trips booked that they were unable to cancel? I can't imagine - even with the beauty of the ocean in Phuket - actually enjoying a vacation there at this time in history. Not to be too judgemental, but I couldn't imagine sitting on the beach sunning myself with so much tragedy around me. I think I would want to spend my "vacation" volunteering there or something...

Reminds me of the days after 9/11. Sounds silly, but even a few months after the towers fell, I couldn't bring myself to do something as simple as go to the mall and shop for Christmas. I'm not even located in the Northeast - nor did I have family there - but doing something as vapid as shopping at the mall and going about my business seemed crass in some way... but if I analyze it long enough, losing that feeling seems more crass than anything (using the Rwanda Hotel example - going back to my dinner after watching the disaster unfold on t.v.).

Not sure if I'm making any sense here...
