Cane Fire

I finally got to see a cane fire last night. Josh's aunt (his step-mom's step-sister) has a cane farm. And they were burning the cane across the road from their house so they invited us to come sit on their front verandah and watch. As you can see, the men start at one corner and then go down the sides of the fields lighting the edges. As the fire catches on it draws in to the middle of the field creating this huge, hot, loud fire. As I said, we were across the road but it felt like sitting right in front of the fireplace. And it was incredibly loud. Josh got some video but I never have luck loading videos. And one of the ones he got is too long anyway.
