Sugar, Sugar, Sugar and Oh Yeah, More Sugar...

Every morning outside the school I was volunteering at in Sembalun, Lombok there would stand this charming fella selling his wares.  Try to guess what was in his funky tin belt/walking bazaar?  Little bitty pinches of sugar!  It came in the form of toasted & shredded sugarcane and it went for about a penny or so.  All the school kids would pop by on their way in the front gates and buy a tiny bite (if they had a penny, that is) and once they sucked all the sweetness out of their pinch, they would just be wired and happy to start the long, arduous day of learning.  I thought this was a brilliant execution of entrepreneurship and it just solidifies my belief that sugar really does make the world go round~~
Side note:  I would love to give up sugar this year.  Love to.  Of course, this being murmured as I smell a big fat chocolate cake baking downstairs that I literally roused my mom from a deep, dark sleep to make.
