Koh Lanta, Thailand--Ten-month old Suwaimee Ninthong bathes in a bucket in front of the tent he shares with his family after their home was destroyed by the Tsunami in the village of Hua Laem on Koh Lanta island, Thailand.  In the background, his mother, Korntip, tries to coax her daughter, Gitnmaree (2) to put on her clothes after her bath.  The family also lost Korntip's father who was trying to save his fishing boat when the second wave came.  The family has yet to find his body and is unable to proceed with funeral services without it.  01/21/05 © Julia Cumes / The Image Works
