Sri Lanka: Highlands by gofargetlost


Star 0


A nice enough town sitting high up in the mountains with excellent views of the tea plantations below. The small population of Haputale are mostly Tamils (South Indian) brought over here to work for the tea barons from neighbouring India. I've also been hearing that the construction workers building all the high rises and condo units in Colombo are also imported from nearby countries like Bangladesh, China and Pakistan. And thus I've been wondering, why not hire the local people?
