The Border Between Heaven And Earth

This was going to be a completely different post that I was halfway through writing when my blogging software just decided to up and die on me without even extending the courtesy of auto-saving even one goddamn sentence.

So instead I did what I always do when inspiration fails me, trawl the interwebs for random shit and after a solid three minutes of dicking around, I found something pretty cool.

There’s a place in Bolivia called Salar de’Uyuni which is the world’s largest salt flat.

For most of the year all this means is that the ground is really white and, well, completely flat, BUT during the rainy season the salt flats turn into a fucking gigantic natural mirror, perfectly reflecting the sky above it.

How amazing are these pictures?







I love the way the world can be that way. Just when you think you’ve got it all figured out, you discover some crazy place somewhere where the conditions, through a multitude of completely random circumstances, are just right for it to look like paradise.

I’d like to visit this place one day, when this blog site has made me rich and famous, and you’re all invited, every single one of you, on the house, SlickyT’s got it covered Winking smile

One day I tells ya.

We’re all going to Bolivia.
