To a kid from Oregon, seeing native bromeliads growing on a tree branch,
standing in waist deep mud, while your blood is sucked dry by misquotes

Just finished reading 'The Orchid Thief'. I see Aroid list member Dewey
Fisk is in the book. I have never met anyone famous before. I am *so*
looking forward to this trip to the land of plant nuts (so I can feel at
home among my own kind!)
