ok in thailand

Just thought I'd throw up an entry letting people know that I'm still alive here in southern thailand. We're staying on the island of Koh Samui which is on the other side of the mainland from where the tidal wave hit. We have a few friends who were staying on Koh Phi Phi (near Phuket) that I am concerned about. We were all going to meet in Krabi (one of the many scenes of devastation) in a few days. I just saw that the death count has risen to three thousand, and I imagine it will go higher. I feel extremely fortunate.

Ouch. Glad to hear you're ok. Hope all your peeps are too...

I saw it on the news, I was so worried about you guys, then thought "well, THAT'S a bummer on your vacation."

So glad to know you guys are okay...

I sent word around to family and friends that you and Mie are fine, everyone worried when they heard the news but relieved to hear that you're ok. Take care.
