More Mark and Indonesia

I keep wanting to write an e-mail about the Oscars and my awesome weekend, but I keep putting it off. Hopefully for the sake of my sanity I will be able to do that tonight during the Iowa State victory.

I am taking a couple minutes to drop a few more pictures about Mark. This morning when I got to work there was another message from him with more pictures from his trip to Indonesia. I would just like to share some of those with you.

The above picture is to give you an idea of the height of the wave. The wave was about the height of this tree when it hit.

The above picture is to give you an idea of the power of the wave. This boat is so large that Mark couldn’t get far enough back to get the full boat in the picture. The boat is so large that it can not be moved. This boat was out at sea when the tsunami hit. It is now 3 miles inland.

The above picture is of Mark with one of the classes with which he got to interact. For those of you who don’t know Mark, he is the guy flashing the peace symbol. I believe it is one of his trademark photo poses.
