Tsunami

Watching the news is so difficult in these last days since the Asian tsunami. Seeing places I've been, now destroyed, Thailand, a country I feel so close to, in mourning with thousands dead, and wondering if friends and people I've travelled with in the past are amongst those dead. I'd even been thinking about spending this Christmas in Thailand but instead came here. In Lapland it feels so peaceful and removed from the horror that much of Asia is going through but still, like many people, I just can't keep it out of my mind.
