After our boat ride, our driver gave us a tour of a local sugar cane plant where the not only process the cane into sugar products but also use the by products to produce fuel.  Not a bad idea as long as they don’t cut down the jungles to raise more sugar cane.  Learned a lot on how sugar canes grows and is harvested. they set the cane on fire, to rid it of poisonous snakes, and then the cane is cut by hand. The can then regrows, like grass, after being cut. i uploaded some pictures of the mature and newly sprouted sugar cane here  https://keepyoureyespeeled.net/photographs-2/belize-february-2015/nggallery/belize-2015/sugar-can-prodessing-plant-orange-walk-belize-february#gallery/a82564023acbbfa858a7518f67e3b5da/360sugar cane (2 of 11)
