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.
