When stood in Gunung Sitoli (Indonesia) 2004, Rawlakot (Kashmir) 2005 or Port au Prince (Haiti) 2010 the predominant thought of collision is of tectonic plates. The subduction of one plate by another creating violent tremors at least that is how I remember it from pre GSCE geography. I have been musing on another collision that occurs on these occasions, a collision of the many streams of Geography.
