Along the roadside and in a lot of the villages you'll see hand turned machines and piles of sugarcane. It's worth stopping and having a try. It is surprisingly unsweet. The sugarcane is rolled throught the machine which is not unlike an old, Victorian clothes mangle. The liquid is squeezed out. The cane is then re-rolled, this time with a small sweet lime added. The liquid is then strained and voila - it is ready for drinking.
NB. If you can make yourself understood it is best to request this drink withOUT ice. I am sure it taste nicer if it is really cold but... I decided I would rather save my stomach than find out!
