Amanda's sugar fix....

Amanda had no clue I was taking these pictures. We were traveling between Kisumu, Kenya and Musoma, Tanzania when a sugar craving kicked in. We stopped to use a restroom and Amanda saw a sugar cane vendor on the side of the road. This is what transpired...

Amanda is thinking, "I don't speak Swahili so how am I going to explain to these people that I need some sugar."

Amanda is trying to explain that she only wants a small portion of the sugar cane...and not the entire five foot long piece.

Amanda trying to explain that she needs two small portions (one for me, of course).

Amanda looking down at her new purchase and trying to figure out how she is going to get the sugar out of the sugar cane.

Amanda begins tearing through the cane to the sugary center.

They were quite good. Once you tear through the outer portion, you bite a chunk of the center off and suck the sugar out. Her sugar fix was satisfied for that day...with minor cuts to her gums but no chipped teeth.
