    ... and shampoos she gives them when they pose. Great idea. I will start saving my soaps too. We already bought pens for the school kids which we keep on hand.

    The tea plantations give way to cardamon plants, pepper vines clinging to trees, and coffee bushes on the steep slopes. We keep our eyes open for wild elephant but have yet to see one. We do see monkeys at one point along the road. At the ...
