They Don't Skip a Beat

Tourists return to the beaches and bars of Phuket.

Six days after one of the worst natural disasters in decades, foreign tourists were back on the beaches of this Thai resort island Saturday, frolicking in the gentle waves of the Andaman Sea, riding jet skis, posing for snapshots and sunbathing topless on the sand.

Maybe it’s just me, but I’d feel awfully creepy having a BBQ on a beach in Phuket right now. I understand the need to "get back to normal" and all, but it does seem a little soon to be vacationing in an area where bodies and debris are washing ashore.
