Epicenter: Paradise

I remember a morning couple of years back when I sat on Patong beach in Thailand, sipping a soft drink while my toes were the only thing that obstructed the view of the Andaman sea reaching into the Indian ocean. Even though the main activities for foreigners felt like humanity at it’s very worst, the beach and surroundings are nothing short of spectacular.

Today, mother nature has wrought havoc on that site and many other parts of the coast after the powerful earthquake. I see terrible images from several news flashes and it looks like a completely different world.
