Thank you for your kind positive comments. I am thinking of Costa Rica but
everybody tells me Thailand the Land of Smiles and a colleague here endorses
this. CR for Spaths and Marants and Thailand for no Spaths, no Marants but
SMILES, VERY difficult. Are they actually still cannibals in Papua New
Guinea because if they eat me they might get Irish
BSE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! More helpings later.

| Hello Dany and all!
| Oh yes. If you like the Maranthaceae I strongly advise you to go to the
| Americas... you can't imagine what I've seen in Costa Rica. It's a very
| country to go, we had no problems at all, and I even collected a few
| plants that I brought to Portugal, aswell as many seeds (mainly Calatheas
| and Heliconias).
| Do you imagine forests of giant Calatheas and Heliconias... and the giant
| Anthurium salvinii growing on the trees... and forests of giant
| horsetails... and trees growing *under* the dense cover of epiphytic
| and bromeliads... all this and much more I've seen and touched.
| But Costa Rica is an easy country. What I really want is to go to Papua
| Guinea. Has anyone gone there? Come on, share your Tropical Experiences!
| Again concerning Tanzania - very nice, I will arrive right on the day of
| But what aroids should I look there in Tanzania? I have plenty of time!
| Does Anchomanes giganteus grow there?
| See you all,
