Tea Anyone?



Z and I hiked about eleven kilometers (you do the math) through the jungle and uphill on a VERY rural mountain road in order to visit the mangnificant Cameron tea plantation.





It was a long trek getting there but absolutely worth every hot, sticky, itchy (mosquito bites), sweaty moment.



Once at the top we enjoyed tea and, if you can believe it, crumpets! It was all VERY British. There are tours of the tea factory and of course the obligatory tea factory gift shop.

Luckily a kind gentleman from Sri Lanka gave us a lift down back to our hostel. Turns out he works for the U.N. doing all kinds of cool stuff. Traveling always leads you into the most unexpected and unusual situations.

We got some really great photos, so check'em out at flickr (the "Meandering Pictures" link on the side bar).

Erin-
I miss you so much. I know i have said that before but i don't know if i have ever meant it so much. I have such erin-sickness (home sickness but just for you) I wrote you an e-mail, but i thought i would leave you a post as well. I just want to give you a really really big hug- i just hope i wouldn't break your skinny ass. I feel silly because i have 4 amazing family members at home, but all i really want is some trupple loving. You guys look like you are having such a great time. I have the most beautiful family!!! I love you, I love you I love you.
