  • Because it was after 2 months harvested sugarcane had become just way. Strong winds as well as cycling, not recommended. I think I Michi is the way to the village, so the pass.

  • I had just started harvesting sugar cane. Sugar cane juice was a nostalgic taste. On the island, no signal. Of course there is no police station.

  • Later harvested on a straight road is (kinda narrow) vast sugar cane fields that there seemed far away. It can harvest in a year and a half.
