Arrived about 13.30 in Tanah Rata and had a pretty standard first day, walking around town getting my bearings, deciding what I'd do with my time here, buying bus tickets and eating ( a fantastic banana leaf set meal at the Indian). Couldn't sleep all night and woke up late to hear a guy jerking off in his dorm bed. Nice.
Next day was my big day of walking, after a good breakfast i picked up a banana roti for takeaway for my lunch, then set off on 'jungle trail 8', one of the many marked paths in the area that one can walk without i guide
Anyway, wandered around the nearby town of Brichang for a while, then got the bus to Sungai Palas Boh tea estate (well, i had to walk the last 2km, so nearly got the bus there). I was very amused that there main tea they make is called BOH, as I'm sure anyone who's ever been in a class with Rudi flanders would be. The video talk about the plant also said it about 1000 times, which again amused me greatly.
All idiocy aside, the visit was actually very informative; i learned about the 5 stages involved in tea making, got a factory tour and even got to try some free tea (Result). Exhausted, i left to get back to Tana Rata, watched Fantastic four then slept.
Spent the last day reading, doing this Internet update and waiting for my bus to Kota Bharu, where i meet Corrin and Matt. Wicked
