Excerpt from A Winter Tour in India and Ceylon With a Kathiawar Prince
From Colombo to the foot of the hills, the railway line passes through interminable forests of palms. The cocoa and areca palm form the large bulk of the trees, but there are endless varieties that are not... found in India, at least which are not met with along the ordinary highways. The country all along teems with vegetable life, but what strikes the visitor from India more than the foliage are the broad sweeps of green velvety sward.
