  1. Absolutely outstanding what the British cave divers and their international compatriots accomplished -- with full backup from the local support services. Full kudos also to the Thai government -- especially the governor -- for quickly asking for competent foreign help rather than trying the rescue on their own. I'm really glad that "face" did not get in the way but that pragmatic common sense prevailed. I consider Vernon Unsworth -- the British diver living in Chiang Rai -- as the key person instrumental in getting the international rescue effort going. Without him, it could have been a totally different story. For what it's worth, in this case I felt very proud of my adopted home country.
