  The sugar can plantation
by Joan58

In the inland there are sugar can plantations. To tour them is a great experience. You run through dirt roads between two sugar can walls. When the harvest-time come, the farmers set fire to the fields. In this way they kill all the dangerous venemous snakes and the spiders that live among the sugar cans, which can't be damaged by the fire. After I known this thing, I became to look around worried to see a monstrous spider crossing the road.
