    Wow, congratulations!

      Thanks Vladimir, it was a fun trip. Hoping to get to Oaxaca and Chiapas next Jan, will try to get to Cerro Zempoaltepec as you recommend. Looks like a nice place with micro-endemic Microtus umbrosus, Habromys lepturus, and other good stuff. Hopefully the cold won’t matter too much.

        Actually, it might. I was there on one of the last warm nights of the year. Jon was there when it was cold. So much difference.
