RBS, it is therapeutic to write about our feelings about what has happened on the other side of our world. Thanks again for starting this board.I'm so glad that I'm not alone in the need to think, write and read about it Arleen.In reference to your comment about rebuilding, I think that most people in Thailand will re-build exactly where they are. Three schools were damaged quite badly on Kho Lak and they have to level them and rebuild...they were a kilometer away from the beach.Phi Phi island was so massively destroyed that it will take a long time, if ever to rebuild.Phuket will definitely rebuild. The entire island did not suffer so they will re-build and continue drawing tourists to the unaffected areas now that services are being restored.Many people do say that the thought of going to Phuket is abhorrent given the sorrow that has occurred there...and yet less than a week after the disaster, tourists were on the beach.We cancelled our beach trip to a resort area on the Gulf of Thailand just because it seemed so inappropriate to go somewhere and sit by a pool and luxuriate at a time like this.Everyone has a different perception, that's for sure!Liz
