More than I would be able to spend myself, Maria. (Though I certainly don't begrudge you spending what you do.) If you can afford it, why not? I'm aware of you Laelia anceps collection and look forward to seeing your pics as they come into bloom!
Bitepourrie, yes many of us live in "wealthy" countries but that does not mean we ourselves are wealthy. Further you need to keep in mind that in a "wealthy" country, everything (even the common everyday things) costs more as well.
