I’ve seen salt, tasted salt, and even walked on it before (here), but Salar de Uyuni in Bolivia, takes salt to a whole new level. It’s the world’s largest salt flat at over 4,000 square miles (that’s the size of the Big Island of Hawaii or L.A. County or 118 times the size of Manhattan!). Can you even imagine standing in the middle of that desert and all you can see is miles and miles of salt? I can’t and that’s why I’m dying to go.
This place turns into the world’s largest mirror after it rains. So friggin’ surreal!
Finally, must make a mental note to check out Hotel de Sal where the walls, beds, floors, tables (basically, everything) is not-so-coincidentally made of what else? Salt!
