Heading for the hills

We navigated level crossings and landslides (from last year's rains)...

...and encountered luxury (in the shape of air conditioned tea rooms, selling excellent tea), and hard conditions (workers doing manual labour under the bright sun, on the tea plantations and by the roads - I did not expect to see old ladies working on the roads!)

The countryside was magnificent...

but Sri Lanka is making me think a little more about our political difficulties in Northern Ireland, how hard it seems to be for us to agree on comparatively small issues, and about how we actually get the goods we consume in our daily lives.
