Sugar Cane

A man on a cart brings sugar cane fresh from the fields. You pay your money (about £1 for a metre section) and he smooths off the tough knots dividing the segments using a cleaver. You wash, then proceed to gnaw on the cane, crunching the fibrous wood to extract the sugary liquid. The dry fibres are then spat out (onto the floor – why not, it’s China).
