And, probably my final post - the Farewell Dinner on the evening of Monday September 17th. In the first photo, a very happy Hawaii contingent, and in the next one; me, Kampon Tansacha, Leland Lai (incoming IPS President) and Leland's daughter, Lynzee, and the final two photos show a little bit of what an incredible evening and production this was. :)

Great hanging with my Hawaii friends, Bo & Kim, and partner in non-crime Annika! That was the most beautiful sunset, on our way to farewell dinner at Nong Nooch!!

The morning we leave for trip home, our unassuming Patron Saint, Mr. Kampon Tansacha, was there. I feel deeply indebted to him, but how can I pay back?

Mr. Xing from South China Botanical Garden told me that he hiked up this trailless mountain, and saw lots plants similar to those on Hainan island, China. I guess botanists are crazier than hobbists, who merely climb Coryphas

Soil mixing, Nong Nooch style

So available and so tempting in the heat. Weight watcher's bane

We saw lots of altars during our bus tour, but this pair at Nong Nooch is much more elaborate

Mr. Kampon please do not hire this architect again. He discriminates against people over 5'10"

I think this weeping dwarf Tamarind is rarer than the Lodoicias since it is the only one I saw. What a beauty!

Mr. Anders talking about Cycads, which seems to be his true love.

A neat row of Encephalartos hirsutus. Considered by many experts to be the most desirable rare Encephalartos. I can totally see why now.

This sculpture wall was a last hour discovery

Just finished my last breakfast at Nong Nooch. Even though this is my first biennial, I could tell that it will be a high watermark for years to come.

thanks to everyone for sharing the photos – I had forgotten about one of my nice memories, the ride in the back of that open truck going up to Khao Yai National Park – the higher altitude and cool winds blowing across the truck bed was really nice after the heat and humidity down at lower elevations
