Sugaring

Felt so guilty not being home to help Pat with the maple sugar operation that I stopped on my way home from a hard day of temple cruising to help this young woman cook up a few batches of palm sugar.  They tap the tops of certain palms and cook the juice.  We use long bamboo poles like ladders to get up the tree.  It is exhausting. Sitting by the pool now, recuperating.  Love Tom
