Started off on time this morning on our A/C bus. All along the highlands are tea plantations. They are so unique to look at for their patterns. They are planted on slopes, some very steep, so the rains will drain away during the monsoon season. In amongst the tea bushes are Australian Silver Oak trees. These have wide spreading roots which help to prevent soil erosion. Stopped for a couple of photo ops, and the bushes were quite handy for anyone who needed to pee ;-) Our one traveller who didn't seem to have any sense of humour was having a pee a distance away among the tea rows. She popped up just as Bill was taking a photo. She was very upset as she thought Bill was taking a picture of her when he was actually pointing the camera at Sue-On. “Stop that! It’s not funny” and we weren’t even laughing at her but at the other girls who were killing themselves at the situation. They thought she was pretty hilarious getting so upset. Poor lady must had had stomach problems and made numerous visits to the tea bushes along the way.
