About this product
- DescriptionBased on a true story, we follow author, Christopher Jaymes, as he exchanges his would-be vacation in for a six-weekstint as an aid worker in one of the world's most tragic disasters. Upon his arrival in Bangkok, he was informed that a tsunami had devastated the west coast of Thailand and that the only hotel still standing was the hotel holding his reservation. A demystifying and satirical, yet astonishingly human commentary at the gut-wrenching realities occuring at a time where selflessness should flourish, but selfishness prevails. Jaymes leads us through an adventure of mental anguish while drug-infested degenerates andhallucinatory aid workers pulltogether in hopes tofulfill their dream of serving humanity. At the core of the madness, Jaymes examines the fine art of deflecting ego chatter and the innate fear of the unkwn that most of us harbor in the depths of our souls.
