The living root and vine bridges in the Khasi Hills of India    Vines and roots of trees are trained to stretch across rivers and streams, to create a sturdy structure strong enough to be used as a bridge for up to 50 people at a time. Villagers create these living bridges – which take 10-15 years to grow – as a solution to the high annual rainfall, which would cause ordinary wooden bridges to rot.

My dear children, a week ago I arrived on the beautiful island of Ceylon, south of India. With this letter I send you a picture of a tea plantation in Ceylon. Notice the men and women plucking the leaf. Many of them come from the south of India. Look at the White planter. Tomorrow I leave Ceylon on a long voyage to China. On the next shipment home, I have sent mother a chest of tea grown on the hills of Ceylon.  I remain, your loving Father. 16th July 1916
