Oh yes, what feast. During more than an hour Dr . Tom
Croat has read his text french with a great deal of application. Everybody was
attentive and admiratif for the work done. It was a beautiful time of our
meetings with Belgian and Dutch friends as well as aroidophiles from Paris,
From the bottom of my heart, thank you Tom!

Subject: [Aroid-l] Tom Croat Conferance
at The Nancy Bot Gard,France
I was yesterday in France for a conferance from Mr Thomas Croat at the
Nancy Botanical Garden.
I haven't got the chance to meet Mr Croat before and it was for me a great
opportunity to do so with the help of Genevieve Ferry who,i know,had work
a lot to made this conferance real.I had the chance to talk with Mr
Croat a long time,altough it should probably be never enough in my
vue...It is amazing how simple this man was able to stay!It was really an
honor for me to meet him and i wanted to say of course a great
thank, to him first off course, for his disponibility,his
knowledge,his kindless,his humor....but also to all the people who made this
meet possible!Aroid is a very little country,but what kind of good people are
living there!I meet some very nice people yesterday!
