    Egypt.

    Egyptian landscape. Sugarcane fields. Men chopping the cane by hand. C/U of them chopping with machete-like tools. Large number of people working in the fields. The leaves are peeled from the canes. Some children work amongst the men. Canes are loaded on to the backs of camels. C/U of a young boy eating sugar cane.
