Sugar Cane is becoming an important crop in NE Thailand. It is used for production of sugar, and creation of bio-fuels. It is now being grown extensively in what were rice farms for the past 1000 and more years, and the reason is simple...it is more profitable.
One consequence is that there are increasing numbers of large, slow trucks cluttering up the country roads, and this is yet another challenge for those, like me, who like to drive about. Last weekend, while driving in NE Thailand, I passed this large, sugar cane laden trailer laying on its side in the main street of a small Village...evidently the truck driver had performed an erratic move that was beyond the capability of the trailer he was towing. Note the unconcerned ATM operator in the background.
