I have always dreamt of Sri Lanka.
Partly because of the weakness I have for English Hill Stations. Partly because of judging the student category at the APICTA ICT Awards (I had always wondered what my Sri Lankan friends fed their children in order for them to sweep the tertiary student category every year). And partly because of Malinga.
This summer when the opportunity arose for a chance to experience Sri Lankan tea planatations first hand at Nuwara Eliya it was like being asked to write and perform a play on Broadway (a different secret dream, another story, another time). If you are looking for a week long getaway from your fast life and would just like to be pampered every which way you can for 5 days doing nothing, don’t think, just book a trip to Colombo and grab a ride to Nuwara Eliya.
No words, just pictures.
