This postcard of the Cameron Highlands in Malaysia comes from Nuru, who also lives in the country. Nuru tells me that tea leaves are also a common sight in Malaysia, a fact that I am pretty familiar with. The area, located about 200 km from the capital, Kuala Lumpur, was named after Sir William Gordon Cameron, who was a colonial officer that visited the area in the 1880s. The Cameron Highlands are known for having a year-round wet season, with most rainfall taking place October and November and the least between January and February. It has been a major tea growing region of the country since 1926. Definitely a beautiful place! I have always believed that Malaysia must be one of the most beautiful countries in the world and it seems that my instincts were quite right. Thank you for a great postcard Nuru!
