There has been so much talk lately of our snow and more so the salt shortage. I came across some photos the other day from our travels in Bolivia five years ago - these ones are taken on the salt flats, Salar de Uyni - my absolute most favourite place on earth (so far!). The expanse of white goes on for about 4000 square miles - it was fascinating and stunningly beautiful. Anyhow, I thought it was ironic that it looks like beautiful snow in the snaps, when in fact it's 100% salt - the one thing we could have done with lots of, badly last week!
The photo on the right was taken from a strange island on the salt flat made up entirely of cactus, amazing! For some perspective, that thing on the salt just below the island is a plane!
