Koh Lanta, Thailand--Two boys show each other the trasures they've found in the debris after a Tsunami destroyed their village of Hua Laem on the island of Koh Lanta in Southern Thailand.  While children approached the slow clean-up process as though is were a treasure hunt, their parents had to deal with the reality of having lost most of their worldly posessions along with their homes and fishing boats. 01/18/05 © Julia Cumes / The Image Works
