Bleher’s Biotopes in Nature and in Aquaria
Mountain ranges, unspoiled nature, picturesque waterfalls. Exotically-clad people of various races, including little-known mountain tribes. A land traversed by one of the 10 greatest rivers on earth, with huge inland delta and some 4,000 islands. A breathtaking constellation here on planet Earth, waiting to be explored the moment borders were opened and visitors permitted. Outside its borders this ittle-visited country is known world-wide as Laos, a name which originated in a misinterpretation f the name given it by the French, long ago. They called the region Les Laos (plural), referring to he Laotian kingdoms of the past. But the people of this land-locked realm call themselves, nd their country, Lao, now as in the past.
