    I am on a "working vacation/internship". I am a college student in the US, studying Food and Agriculture Business Management. I am interested in international work after graduation, so this appeared to be a good blend of my skills and interests. I love orchids and photography, and I am very interested in conservation of species. I am hoping that my little project brings more awareness of South American species.

    A beautiful 'very warm' orange color. You have certainly chosen a interesting course of study. This trip should broaden your outlook and horizons enormously. Much success! AL

    Thanks, Al!
    I'm certainly learning that:
    1) I don't speak Spanish as well as my daughter-in-law has led me to believe.
    2) People are extremely kind and forgiving so long as you try.
    3) If you're going to be changing lenses hundreds of times every day, be sure to pack some sensor cleaning kits. I'm off to a camera repair guy today!
