Cutting sugar canes

At one side of the route, going to visit Ta Prohm temple, there was a small village with few houses near a sugar plantation
The activity was to sell some crafts (baskets) and sugar in attractive wrapped ways at the passing tourists

The boy is cutting the canes forming rings that other person will fill with sugar
An interesting process I have also seen in Paraguay (making sugar), they were kind to offer me some sugar wrapped in sugarcane leaves and insisted me to eat at that moment, a quite moving present, never tasted something so sweet
