IUCN Workshop in Laos

I'm back from the IUCN workshop in Vientian, Laos. What a fruitful visit indeed. I met so many regional odonatologists in the workshop. The workshop evaluated freshwater biodiversity of Indo-Myammar, and the evaluation was mainly on aquatic plants, mollucs, fish and dragonflies. The workshop attended by roughly 30 participants of different biodiversity groups, and we had a group photo on the last day of the workshop (photo below).

We were posing on the river bank of Mekong River for the group photo. It is still the dried season in Laos, and the Mekong River is almost dried out.

I was intoxicated every evening in Vientian by this stuff. Of course, I did it with some of the odonatologists!!!! hehehehehehe
