previously Doctor's Thaum diary Near the geographical center of Celestia, January 618, the 29th Celestia Superb Orchid Search, 24 th day We ventured deep into the very heart of Celestia, from Orchid Bay on the north of the island. We choose a travel to the south, but the dense, hostile and luxuriant jungle, make us to follow the easy path of a inner river. From Orchid Bay our path would in fact be a south/south-east travel. We finally reach the center mountain peak, and we were searching for a fairly passable way when we oversee a shinny blue lake, with that seems to be a ruined city on its shore. Finally on the rocky shore of this lake, we found it... and friends. Another expedition reached the orchid, almost at the same moment. Too bad that a lava flow and a wall of steam kept us away from the orchid, but I think that the lake and so the Orchid won't last long according to the damage caused to the surroundings by the terrible heat and the non-stop lava flow. This was a sort of meeting at the end of a world. However, this giant orchid (Fig A.) seemed to have been sanctified by ancient civilization of the island according to the shrine it lays upon and the statues around the shrine. That giant orchid seems to offer delight to a kind of in keeping flying insect (Fig B. 1 and 2) Iauln was very interested to bring this insect with us but it was not interested in. I don't think the colonel Allcock could bring this orchid back anywhere, it would have needed a big big flowerpot. : Fig A. Phalaenopsis orchidaceae gigas : Fig B 1 : Fig. B 2 Phalaenopsis macroglossum gigas Colonel sir Dirk Allcock : Doctor Thaum, I presume ? I finally succeed in rebuilding my cat C after the terminal crash of my PC... C&C welcome, and thanks for the extra time.
