Mexican fieldtrip spring 2006
February 10 to 28.
I was fortunate to be able to join a group from “succulenta” The Dutch society on fieldtrip to Mexico were we would look for Agaves, cacti and other succulents in the state Hidalgo, Puebla, Vera Cruz, Oaxaca and Morelos.
I was still 6 times in Mexico, but at was 1979 the last time in the state Oaxaca and in 2006 we are back!.
The pictures I use are the most of my self, if not you see (M.S.) is for example Marcel Stolk.
But also is possible (G.M) its a plant friend Gerrit Melissen, one year earlier I make a trip with him.
In keeping with previous records, I have organised these pages into a daily narrative, and a link to the pictures that I and my travelling friends have made each day.
But we use only the agaves pictures on this website.
At the end of each day, the link Fieldtrips on de leftside will return to this page
I start with day 2, day one is the flight-day.
