Tsunami News Updates: First-hand Account From Maprao Resort, Phi Phi

Thanks for the messages and concern for the resort and our people. Phi Phi Islands have already been severely damaged (especially the village and its own surroundings). All our customers surviving in the resort during the disaster escaped unharmed. Maprao’s staff too. The dive instructors Nikos and Lach, Miao (barkeeper) are secure. Everybody staying there showed plenty of courage and efficiency. Our son Boris was spending some holidays in Japan and hurried back again to Thailand to provide us a hand. Concerning both folks, we were also very lucky to flee (once the tsunami hit the island, we were around the ferry boat from Phi Phi to Phuket, stucked in the center of the ocean..). The bungalows, built just a little higher over the hill, remain o.k. Others within the village or elsewhere experienced less luck. All of the survivors have been evacuated and we have been prohibited for as soon as to return for the island, due to the search works plus the high risks of diseases. But at the earliest opportunity, we shall brace ourselves with all our strength and courage and rebuild our future. Thanks for all your good vibrations you’re sending to us. Direction de Maprao Resort. YOU SAW IT, YOU UNDERSTAND ABOUT ANY OF IT, SO REACT ! AND ACT NOW ! WE ACTUALLY NEED YOUR HELP A.S.A.P.
