A Tourist's Tale

A chap I know spent the Christmas holidays in Bangkok. People round him (bar and hotel staff?) were joking about this tsunami thing that had hit the coast. "You should go to Phuket; they're handing out free food." He gathered there'd been some minor local unpleasantness.

It was only when he arrived back home that he discovered he'd been living in the middle of a disaster area...

...and that he'd have learned more about Thailand if he'd have stayed at home and watched TV.
