Green footprint

My tree - January 2012 version
My thanks to Sharee who sent me a picture she took at the weekend. Back in August 2009, I visited the island of Koh Trong, near Kratie and in the middle of the Mekong River. And I took part in a tree-planting scheme, designed to replenish the tree stocks surrounding the pagoda at Wat Ty Param Kbal Koh Trong. I joined a bunch of other travel agents to plant my own tree, complete with name tag. Though I've been back to Koh Trong I haven't revisited my tree, so I was pleased to see that Sharee has confirmed it's alive and well, and flourishing, to an extent. Long may its roots and branches continue to deliver my green footprint.

I can confirm that it is still there as well. I saw it while doing a tour survey and said when I saw it, "Hey, I know that guy."
