Scientists have just announced that they have discovered 10 new species of orchids along the Costa Rica - Panama border. There are already 1,300 known species of orchids in Costa Rica. Tiny Costa Rica has 7% of the world's orchids.
Sorry not to illustrate this story with a photo of one of the flowers at our Langosta condo. I do have some orchid photos on my external hard drive, but it is not handy. I will show more orchid photos in the future.
This week we are showing photos from Villa Balbianello at Lake Como, Italy, on our Viva la Voyage travel photo site.
