Tea for two? (Me and a monkey?)

Here are some pictures of the lovely tea plantation. The ride was hairy (See ‘Oh, my tired self’, Oct 18th), but the view was worth it. And the melktart was incredibly tasty.

The very sad thing about the tea plantation is that it is no longer working. There is apparently a land claim against it – I understand much like our native land claims here, so meanwhile it sits and goes to seed (or whatever tea plantations do) while I expect the government will take it’s own sweet time deciding who owns it.

There were many breathtaking views in S A, but this was one that you could never tire of looking at.
