Notes on the Geography of Sri Lanka: Loolecondera
Loolecondera is famous as the first tea plantation in Ceylon.
It's still a going concern.
The highway runs through the plantings.
Nationalized some years ago, the plantation is still run by a parastatal.
The plantation's own roads are very well made.
About as tidy as it comes.
Squint, and it might almost be a golf course.
Taylor's Seat: a bench for contemplation.
The view looks over the Gurugal Oya valley.
What's left of Taylor's very modest bungalow.
