then the lady who was in the background of the "kitty pic" from the last post said "why dont you take a picture

of a real harimao(tiger)",meaning herself,& we all thought it was a little "aneh"(weird).

post-206-022636000 1310704962_thumb.jpg

there were ice cream vendors behind nearly every tree preying on the glut of school-age children.

post-206-047162000 1310704982_thumb.jpg

that lady to the left had to fix the kids hat about 13 times before we could take this pic.

I would kill to have that kind of canopy.... Imagine the possibility of what you can grow under it!!! It is one of the oldest botanical garden in the world!! And it shows..... Did you go to the restaurant?? There was this ceiba that has came down... they kept the stump and planted a new one between the roots. It was massive!!!

as we walk down the shady path passing lots of school children eating packed lunches of fried chicken with

sambal as hot as the surface of the sun which would burn most american children to a crisp we suddenly

emerge into the sun & see these amazing palms beckoning...

Ok, I'll try to do better with my comments. :D

Your croton is actually called Bogoriensis. Expect my bill in 7 working days.

Enjoying the pic's, it really looks like you had a great time. Maybe in this century sometime, you might want to join us all on a Biennial too. :D

Take care, is there more? :hmm:
