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.  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.  Behind Talek, his father picks through the rubble of their home, looking for salvagable items. 01/17/05 © Julia Cumes / The Image Works
