While backpacking through Malaysia, I managed to break the world’s largest flower, get a self-diagnosed case of swine flu and take a tour BOH Tea Plantation in Tana Rata. With a sea of green tea fields and spots of workers’ heads stretching into the horizon, the plantation was a scene of unparalleled tranquility and beauty. I was especially enchanted by the narrow dirt roads that parted the rows of tea to allow farming vehicles and my tour jeep to pass through: a wonderful blend of nature and humanity.
