Sugar country

I miss the long days, when I could dally in the afternoon and still have time to get as far as I’d like. I’m not actually worried about time, it is ok to be doing shorter days. 

Spent a bit of the day dodging trucks full and tractors pulling loads of sugar cane (getting passed on flat ground and trying not to run into them going up or down hill) and fields and fields of the stuff on fire. The burned leaf matter blows around, I’m pleased that I finally got a new pair of glasses yesterday, so to protect my eyes. Stopped for the day in Atencingo, home to one of the largest sugar refineries in the country. Most of the population is involved in sugar production. 

Went out to get food and walk around in the rain. There is a really nice park near where I am staying.
