I am sure you are distressed at having missed a couple of days of post, but here we are at Ceylon Tea Trails in the heart of Sri Lanka's tea plantations.
As I type the rain is raining and the thunder is thundering and everything is clean and cool - what a relief. We have been lucky with the weather - most days have been typical tropical weather - hot and humid followed by afternoon and evening thunderstorms. We are holed up for a couple of days in luxury - each bungalow has four to five large rooms/suites - this one was built in about 1888, probably the residence of the plantation manager. You can be assured that we are not suffering!!
