♫♫ Another Pot O' Tea. Emmylou Harris ♫♫

Seven cups of tea

a poem by Lu Tong

The first bowl moistens my lips and throat;

The second bowl breaks my loneliness;

The third bowl searches my barren entrails but to find

Therein some five thousand scrolls;

The fourth bowl raises a slight perspiration

And all life’s inequities pass out through my pores;

The fifth bowl purifies my flesh and bones;

The sixth bowl calls me to the immortals.

The seventh bowl could not be drunk,

only the breath of the cool wind raises in my sleeves

Tea is one of the main exportation products in Sri Lanka, and that's why they have a number of factories like this one. Thanks for the favs Russell smile

Very interesting. (If there was ever a romantic illusion of the production of tea, it's gone now.) smile The HDR works excellent here, especially in #8.

A ideia é ter uma mistura de fotos mais artísticas com fotos que mostrem a viagem mas sem pretensões artísticas. Obrigado Zé

Putting tourists to work AND let them pay for it: that's always a good idea smile

I think they ruin more than help IMHO. smile I wouldn't want to drink tea made of the leaves they pick up smile
