We then drove onto the salt flats and I shall say this- at 19 I have been extremely lucky to see many natural wonders of this world- The Himalayas, The Great Barrier Reef, Kenyaīs Rift Valley, Uluru, Icelandīs ice caps and many more but I have never seen anything like these salt flats. It is just incredible to be standing on a layer of water just a few cm thick and look out over what is truly the worldīs largest mirror. There is just nothing like it.
We spent hours exploring and walking, taking photos and collecting salt crystals. After getting sunburnt under the chin (the mirror obviously reflects the sunīs rays) we headed back covered in,err salt. Thatīs right!
We went out for a Pizza and were in bed by eight! It was like being 9 again!
