    How Gypsies Escaped Tsunami in Thailand

    Sea Gypsies Saw Signs In The Waves

    The tsunami may have lasted only a couple of hours, but it will not go away. New casualties are still being discovered: Thais, Swedes, Sri Lankans, and Indonesians. The death toll has topped 175,000. And there's more than 125,000 still missing and presumed dead.

    But there's one group who live precisely where the tsunami hit hardest who suffered no casualties at all. They are the sea gypsies of the Andaman Sea, or as they call themselves, the Moken.

    They've lived for hundreds of years on the islands off the coast of Thailand and Burma. They are, of all the peoples of the world, among the least touched by modern civilization.

    Thank you for this post, Mudra. I always liked gypsies, their freedom, their power of adaptation and their surviving mode (making SOMETHING out of NOTHING). They are greatest survivors on this planet, spread everywhere and living mostly on very substandard level...with lots of music, btw. This case shows them in real light and I am very interested to learn more of this group.

    Greetings!

    Hello Oliver
    Good to see you Cheerful
    I found the above article interesting indeed as well as positively inclined towards the gypsies .
    It's all in their honor and deserved to be acknowledged.

    Love from me
