A short bus tour from Varadero takes you out into the countryside to see the macheteros (machete wielding men) at work cutting the long sugarcane stocks. Of course, the macheteros are there for the tourists, as the harvests have been done mechanically for a long time.
After trying your hand at cutting the plant yourself, you can munch on the fresh stock. Later in the tour you can taste Guarapo, an iced drink which is made by putting a sugarcane stock through a press to squeeze out all the juice.

A scenic fresh green rural scene and I can smell the fresh air as the beautiful tree is there to add interest catching the eye into the shot surrounded by such lush nature colours in a very comfortable composition. That sky is very interesting! Congrats

I like the great perspective that this path gives the composition, a nice place to walk surrounded by sugar cane fields, the lone tree give a nice addition, along with the beautiful sky.
The brightness and sharpness are also perfect.
Well done. I love it.
Have a good weekend.
All the best.
