Dear Jane,
I have had to let the trip in Chile go because I have to be back in Queensland by beginning of October. I have almost organised a guided trip in Brazil for the first two weeks of September starting at Sao Paulo Airport hoping to see a number of amaryllids in flower. There is space for one or two others if anyone is interested. I have a probable itinerary which we are working on.
