Tea, tea and more tea !

They even have flying tea ! Well, they put the tea in...

Where's Tarzan when you need him ?! (Rainforest trek)

It's not the size of your blowpipe that counts.........

Susie with "Pepe", one of the dogs at the Daniel's Lodge hostel,...

A resident at the Butterfly Park

My hands are lethal weapons, this snake not realising it was lucky...

Another, rather un-butterfly-like resident of the Butterfly Park

From K.L. we headed up to the Cameron Highlands - colonial towns and rainforests in the mountains/hills. Very beautiful, peaceful and much cooler than the plains. Also famous for tea plantations so heaven for me. Stayed in a really basic backpackers lodge which was great - so nice when you find really cheap accommodation with great staff and CLEAN!

Met some lovely people there including a Slovakian couple who are also travelling around the world but by crewing yachts to save money! Such places are a great way to accumulate travel tips!

Reminiscent of Darjeeling, being a hill resort away from the heat of the 'plains', as well being famed for it's tea production. Also home to a fantastic little cafe (the T Cafe) although we only found this on our last day. We splashed out on a day trip which included the Boh Tea Plantation, a short trek in the rainforest (machete obligatory) and some fun with a blowpipe at a native village !

This place also seems to be where half the world's old Land Rover Defenders end up !
