Reminders of the Tsunami

Our pictures of Phuket include some shots of tsunami hazard zone & evacuation route signs.  We saw these signs everywhere on the island.  I was surprised, however, that these signs were the only reminders of the tsunami in Phuket.  I expected to see some damaged buildings and maybe even a memorial of some sort, but there were none.  If it weren’t for those signs, it would be hard to believe that it ever happened.

I have to admit that I had a strange fascination with all things tsunami-related while we were in Phuket.  I think it was just a little surreal to me to be in the place where it happened.
