Koh Lanta, Thailand--Talek Khlongdee (4), plays with a bucket of water next to what used to be his family's home in the village of Hua Laem on Koh Lanta Island, Thailand.  Behind him one can see his neighbor's house with partial new construction.  While many of the residents of Hua Laem lost their homes to the Tsunami, the villagers were able to repair pipes that bring fresh water from a municipal tank supplied by a nearby mountain stream.  01/17/05  © Julia Cumes / The Image Works
