Hey, sugar! Honey, honey!

Sugar cane waiting to be collected

Sugar cane juice is a popular drink throughout Southeast Asia and I was lucky enough to come upon the sugar cane distribution centre in Phnom Penh in Cambodia.

It seems that the cane is delivered to a central location and is then collected by the city’s many juice sellers. Some bring just their motorbike, while others bring their entire juice cart. I wondered if there was more than one distribution point. In a city this size, it would seem likely.

You could never call it a sophisticated operation, but it definitely gets the job done.

I was quite surprised to see that half the kids in town WEREN’T hanging around waiting for a handout.

Just wish I had had a little bit of the language so I could have found out more about this enterprise.
