Just got back from our National Orchid Conference...what a week

Got to attend lectures by some great speakers like:
Prof Leonid Averyanov (Russia) - Paphs & Orchids of Vietnam
Dr Norito Hasegawa - Phals and Paphs
Alexander Hirtz (Ecuador) - Fast evolution of orchids
Joyce Stewart (UK) - Angraecoid orchids
Heather & Bob Campbell (Kenya) - Orchids of Kenya (showed a pic of Dian Fossey sitting in a clump of orchids)
and many more...

I have a stack (about 5000) of pics to sort out and about 180 gig of videos.

I bought some lovely plants...have to sort them out too

Will post some pics soon...now I must sleep

Gideon! I am so envious! Did we send you any business cards to hand out there? We should have!

I cannot wait to see your photos and your new plants. You have such lovely taste!!

I roomed with a Heather Campbell in college.
Actually, that was my Junior year. My Freshman year, I shared a wing with two other Heathers. And the movie had just come out. It was sort of a nightmare.
