Yes, there was some talk about thast last week.

However, IMO nothing to worry about. The chances of another tsunami hitting Phuket fater having had the first one in 200 years are small. On top of that, there is warning system in place and functioning.

My understanding is that it was "false alarm" - I think they are being overly cautious.

The next one isn't due for about 100 years.

Guys, thanks for your reply!

(btw, you sound like my boyfriend - sometimes, you men can be so laid back

it's quite annoying...lol! )

I guess, I have no other option but to stop rowing with him about this trip and try to relax a bit.

I have another silly q ( sorry Tedkarma! :))...Here in the UK, sculls are everywhere ( this year's fashion must! ).

Is it offensive to wear shirts with printed sculls in Thailand???

Thanks once again!

I would advise you but have no idea what a "scull" is - sorry!

Pretty much though here - almost anything and everything is okay. 'Tis why we like it here . . .

I'm sorry but why would anybody want to wear a shirt with skulls on it, either here or on holiday?

maybe I'm off with the fashion thing but I haven't seen any clothing covered in skulls?

couldn't you just wear some nice polo shirts??!!!!!

Bunk555 - Girls do NOT wear polo shirts!

( and no, I am not a goth, nor really desire to be - it's just a fashion thing)

Anyway, I'll take your comment into consideration :)...thanks.

It's OK bunk555.

If nothing else, you are helping me to take

my mind off this tsunami warning.

PS When I get back, I'll post a nice pic of me wearing this mini skirt...with a mini scull on it (naturally!):)

You shall see - it's not that bad!

I read those warning stories too, but I refuse to let them get me worried. We'll be spending two week island hopping in the Andaman late April and I'm just going to enjoy myself and hope for the best!
