Too busy catching planes, trains, vans, bikes and tuk-tuks to post. But we made it to Sri Lanka!
We got on the train in Ella, and headed west higher up the mountains till Haputale, boarded the awaiting tuk-tuks and headed even higher to the Lipton tea factory. Interesting processes of shake and bake that leaf, to produce 8 grades of black tea. The end product, a 65 kilo sack of tea, ready to be sold to the Sri Lankan auction house, which is a government initiative to ensure the tea trade remains viable. Nothing like a good tea to quench the thirst of adventures! English breakfast is the second strongest grade of tea and is made up of smaller blacker tea grains then the browner bigger Tea particles. I was seriously into the tour we had, and am going to start growing tea one day!
Thoughts so far:
Sri Lanka an amazingly beautiful country, with super friendly people and incredible wildlife, we have seen so many animals, it makes me happy to see a country that respects and loves like Sri Lanka does.
Aerial selfies, exploring this tropical island paradise with great friends!
