Koh Lanta, Thailand--One of the Hua Laem's few surviving longtail boat heads out for a day of fishing.  Behind it one can see the pier which was destroyed by the Tsunami on Koh Lanta island in Thailand.  Two people were on the pier at the time the waves hit.  One was a villager trying to save his boat and the other was a female tourist who was photographing the wave.  Neither one's body has been found.  01/24/05 © Julia Cumes / The Image Works
