Tsunami Remembered

Sculptures are displayed on Patong beach during a ceremony to mark the one year anniversary of the tsunami in Phuket southern of Thailand. I had reserved to go to Phuket from 17-29 Dec 2004, this would have been my 5th consecutive visit I cancelled my reservation on the 12th of December. My hotel room was ground floor 40 meters from the sea! At 8 AM I would have been probably asleep :) Was that my fate?
