Why should one of the most devastating tragedies in history stop them from getting a tan? More pics here.
I have received more than a few emails speculating on whether or not those photos were photoshopped. I have no idea if they were or not and we all should take anything we find on the web with a grain of salt. But I would not be surprised if they did turn out to be genuine especially after reading stories like this:
On Patong Beach and Kata Beach – where hundreds died or disappeared four days ago – the smell of suntan lotion wafted from the shore as a new influx of tourists determinedly ignored the carnage around them, frolicking in the surf or reading under umbrellas.
An indignant Russian who arrived at the Novotel Phuket Resort on the day after the tsunami loudly complained that there was no champagne reception.
BBC News also has an article about it.
