Photo: Crust of the Salar de Uyuni

Salar de Uyuni, originally uploaded by lorien.

The ground on the salt flats of the Uyuni in Bolivia is just a comparatively thin layer of earth crust over water. Gas emissions break through the salty crust and create these shapes which stretch out far into the horizon.

    Yeah, it was Simon Reeve’s Capricorn and it was so beautifully made too. Did you also have coca lveaes to beat mountain sickness (AMS)? That’s what the locals recommended to him and he looked pretty OK after that!!! I have never had any problems in the highest mountain passes in Ladakh and in Tibet where I have travelled for so many days without any effects of AMS so I guess I am lucky!!!
