It’s been a day now and I still can’t believe the devastation that has happened in Asia. The death toll keeps rising – it now stands at an estimated 24,000 people, whereas only a few hours ago it was 12,000. The sheer density of population in that region, and the lack of tracking & organisation would seem to indicate that the number will increase again.
My thoughts are with everyone out there – all the wonderful people I met when I was in Thailand earlier this year, and the countless others in the region. I really don’t know what else to say. I know how glad I was when I heard my friend John’s fiance Sinnead was OK in the Maldives, so I just hope that there are more stories like that.
