Every weekend I get out of the city and explore the villages with my 2 Cambodian friends/guides. Here I am biting into a freshly picked sugarcane. The outside cane is similar to the bamboo although not hollow like the latter. The Cambodians peel the skin of the cane with their teeth and then bite off a mouthful of the juicy, sweet and hard interior. There were many vendors throughout the villages that sold the juice after squeezing the hard core. Who needs candy?
