    Ah, saw folks eating this often in Haiti. Great photo, Lisa. Hope you are doing well, my friend. Great to hear from you today.
    Hugs,

      Thanks, Kathy. Yes, Willie took an interesting photograph – just a quick snap as the boy walked past him. He really looks to be deep in thought – or really enjoying the sugar cane! I suppose it’s common for kids (and probably adults too) to do this wherever sugar cane is grown.

    I love raw sugar cane. Yum yum yum. But do hate the smell when they burn the fields to regrow for the next year….

      I’ve never lived in an area where they grow sugar cane, so never did this. What does it smell like when they burn the fields – sickly sweet?
