aboard the sugar train part 1

Right outside of our school is a (rather) famous tourist attraction. Sugar was a big industry about fifty years ago, and outside of our door is a defunct sugar factory. They offer train rides to the cane fields and a walking tour of the facility. Despite having been here for over six months, we’ve never actually ridden on it before. Last Saturday, that all changed. The tour costs $100NT (~$3.30 US), and included both the train ride and the walking tour, along with a semi-lecture on the different stages of sugar processing.
