No grandmother's tale

Bangkok: Tales of the ocean passed down along the generations of a group of Thai fishermen known as the Morgan Sea gypsies may have saved everybody in one of their villages from Asia's tsunami disaster. By the time killer waves crashed over southern Thailand last Sunday, all 181 persons in the fishing village on South Surin Island had fled to a temple in the mountains, English language Thai daily The Nation reported today. ``The elders told us that if the water recedes fast it will reappear in the same quantity in which it disappeared,'' village chief Sarmao Kathalay (65) told the paper.
