    I love your beautiful country, Chu! Your pictures of the orchids are wonderful...I wonder if the A.O.S. ( American Orchid Society ) would be interested in buying some of your fabulous orchid pictures & doing a special on the orchids of Vietnam?! If I were you, I would contact them and ask...Betty :-)

    Thank you very much Betty, that is great idea. I also would like to sell some photos to cover my trips also. But I still don't have contact person there to ask...and I hope I will find someone.

    wow... great muntains. What is the temperature at 3100 m? and where you were sleeping? must not be too cold as you are just wearing 1 or 2 cotton shirts!

    Who carries water and beverages up there? each their own? really cool great photos.

    Obviously you are NOT afraid of heights. I would love to stand up there and look down at the clouds. Wonderful views and as usual, great pictures. I agree that you should find a way to sell your pictures, they are deffinately worthy of it!!!

    Chu, I was a member for many years, but, am not any longer. But, all you would have to do is contact the American Orchid Society by e-mail. Tell them where you are, and see ( ask ) if they would like some sample pictures...It's simple.
