After visiting the tea fields, we visited a secret waterfall in the middle of the Sri Lanka countryside. As we approached the base of the waterfall hike, a mongoose went running across the road, and then we encountered some cats. Fun!
The surprises weren't over, though. As we climbed up through the fields towards the top of the mountain with the waterfall, my mom noticed some very unusual trees. It turns out that they were rubber trees, and later, we were invited to tour a very old rubber factory. The sap is collected from the trees, then cleaned and dried, then smoked in a little hut.
