sugar cane transportDriving along the highway I see a truck filled with what I think is sugarcane sticking out everywhere on all sides of the truck.

Me: Is that sugarcane Vikram?

Vikram: Yes.

Me: Does it taste good?

Vikram: Yes.

Me: Is it sweet?

Vikram: Yes.


Vikram: Do you want some?

Me: Yes

Vikram: Get some.

Me: How?

Vikram: Pull it off the truck.

Me: Should I?

Vikram: Yes.

I hang out of the car window and motion to the woman sitting in the cab of the truck. She sees me stretching toward the sugarcane.  I point to it, she shakes her head yes.

I stretch, grab, but it doesn’t break.

I stretch, grab, reach, bend, hold on, as the truck and car move together. It resists, I hold on.  Success!

I wave to the woman, she shakes her head.  I peel the cane with my teeth. It’s good and sweet.

    In Thailand we would buy sugar cane stalks and chew them down. They had that just-right sweetness.
