Koh Lanta, Thailand--Had Hip Ban Don asesses the damage to his home after the Tsunami tore off much of its floor and ripped holes in its sides in the village of Hua Laem on Koh Lanta island, Thailand.  The Thai government is trying to convince villagers to move to land away from the ocean but the villagers, who are dependent on fishing for their income, are determined to stay by the water.   01/17/05 © Julia Cumes / The Image Works
