Koh Lanta, Thailand--From left, Hua Laem fisherman brothers, Nan and Bangmon Bootmin repair Nan Bootmin's longtail fishing boat after the Tsunami damaged it severely on December 26th on Koh Lanta Island, Thailand.  Bangmon Bootmin's own longtail boat was damaged even more severely. Most of Hua Laem's 50 longtail boats were severely damaged by the waves and their owners are unable to bring in the fish they rely on for their income.  01/25/05 © Julia Cumes / The Image Works
