    Super show and super pictures - took an age to download onmy ultra high speed internet link of 0.5 mbps! But well worth it.
    Bad Salsuflen is a super place too. We stopped there overnight on our way home to England after the EOC Last year.

    I really laughed introductory text; the pic's are fine and I think you should give your camera more often to your friend.

    I don't know. This was my first orchid show and I don't know how it all works.
    To me it looks a bit like Phal. Jade Gold (venosa x gigantea), but I'm really not sure.

    Oops, sorry for that.
    Well.... we just headed to the show and back again, no time to have a look on the town around.

    Nobody verifies the names of orchids entered in a show, at least in the United States. It is very common to see mislabled plants. During AOS judging the judges sometimes will disqualify a plant they think is incorrectly labled, but this does not affect the ribbon judging. I know someone in my society that routinely wins trophies with a magnificent NOID Dendrobium.
