Rothschild was the first tea estate in the world to receive the Global Gap Certificate and also won the “Top Entrepreneur Award” in Sri Lanka a couple of times.

Chandana was looking at the tea estate

This visit to  Up countryside was after a long time, therefore I was stunned by the beauty of the place.

If you are not in a hurry, I recommend you to be in this place at least for an hour. You can relax your mind and body together.

The fresh air that you breathe, you can never find in Colombo.

While I was enjoying the beauty of this plantation, Ladies on the photo said, “Photo Photo Sir”.

I thought , they wanted me to take photos of them.

They act as if they pluck tea leaves.

I took a couple of photos and showed them.

They said “Money Money Sir”.

Oh!!!, then I realized what did they mean by “Photo Photo Sir”.

We gave some money. They were happy too. Be generous on them!!!!!.    “What Goes Around What Comes Around.”
