    I had a wonderful time in Colombia. Went there with some researchers from Sweden, Brazil, Bolivia, Colombia. We spent time in the Choco rainforest just north of Bahia Solano at Jardin Botanico del Pacifico. A wonderful place run by Sergio and his family. I can recommend this place to anyone that´s interested in seeing a lot of animals, orchids and other plants, nice scenery etc. One of the best places I have been to! After Choco we went up in the mountains north of Medellin. We stayed at Belmira and explored the hills there. And then we finished of in Jardin. So for some time to come I will publish pictures from this trip. Enjoy!

    Sounds like a wonderful trip. I, too, look forward to seeing more photos of in-situ plants.

    Amazing. I'm surprised you even saw it.
