    Beautiful shots of untouched land! Lets hope it stays untouched so I can visit one day...I could sit there for hours and hours next to the tranquilizing running water and listening to rain forest sounds.

    Hey did you see any phrags?

    The only Phrags in situ I saw were not in bloom...we all assumed they were caudatums. That was on the day that I was hiking in the rain and didn't have the camera with me. I did get to see the 5 kovachii that Alfredo Manrique has. They were smaller than I expected. I also had the opportunity to tour his lab in Lima. If you are interested here is what mature kovachii plants look like. I put the water bottle in the picture for size perspective.

    Beautiful! Nice to hear that they are smaller than expected. Maybe I can manage them then
