Weekend in Camerons

















We took Donna up into the highlands this weekend. Not exactly a hardship as we rather do like poking about the tea plantations.













I shall let the photos speak for themselves, but if someone can explain to me why there were twelve Lotus cars and two Porsches also poking around over those rough tea plantation tracks, I'd be interested to know.




Two other wondrous things happened too: I walked up several very steep hills (first time after 3 months of enforced rest) and I wasn't shattered afterwards. I think I am back to normal. See photo of me against the skyline going "YAY!"

And I went away for a weekend without my laptop. No writing. I blame Donna, or course. She's too interesting and we talked all the time.

Hip! Hip! Horray! (sorry, not very punny was it?)

Here's my conspiracy theories on the Lotus/Porche mystery.
a) The plantation owner hosted a political meeting and offered donations to certain wealthy bureaucrats.
b) The plantation owner and family are very wealthy and can afford to buy exotic cars.
c) The plantation hosted a seminar for tea producers who all have a fancy for exotic cars.

Than you for more great photos.

My Australian guest was astonished that Malaysians were so rich as to be able to afford so many luxury cars...
