There is also deserts elsewhere

Monday 28 February 2011

Salar Uyuni - Bolivia

With some members of the green team we we decided of new them which is elsewhere. So the name of this note is “tThere is also deserts elsewhere.0 This note will be only for your pleasure in order to sahre with you some of my pas trips and specially the visit of two deserts whic impressed me.

First of all Salar or of Uyuni or also called Salt desert, in Bolivia. I was there in 1996 and I have memories of beauty and purity. When we arrive there we said to ourself we are at World’s End.

Salar of Uyuni altitude of  3700 m is the the biggest salt desert in the world and is around 12 500 km² It is structured since 40 000 years. A third of worldwide reserves for lithium are there. Behind the scene is at that time, in 1996, a bunch of men coming from all Bolivia were working there in order to extract salt briquettes without iodine. All this work’s done for almost nothing. The prolonged contact with salt without iodine could create diseases as cretinism.

At the time I was there with a guide and I had the chance to sleep in the salt lodge : a true eco-lodge made all in salt even the roof.

If you have the chance to go there, go with a local guide to discover this magical site.

Then in the south of African continent there is Namibia desert that I did ten years later in 2006. Desert occupy the area of 80 000km². It is an area about 1500 km along the Atlantic coast. The most deserted part of the desert is in the south of this area and you just arrive in the land of “Screen Saver” who did not get the screen saver with the famous sans dunes?

Wildlife and flora are really special to this area. No much water, the rare plants we can see there get water from the humid winds. Wildlife is made of reptiles and small rodents. This site is pure eye’s delight and brings you a kind of serenity when you see these pure lines. “Designer’s” paradise for Inspiration.

Crossing of desert in sand storm is very impressive. To stop in the middle of nowhere is also a pure delight especially when you get the visit of a small rodent.

 If you have also the chance to go there, go with a local guide to discover this magical site.

Our beautiful earth is full aof treasures that we should respect. We have to get the more benefit of it. When you go in this kind of place, if the trail is not created, do not create one and do not hesitate to take advices for locals. It does bring much to try to be “the adventurer”.

As Abi  from Vertissimmo said , it is good to see a sky with stars with a nice landscape’s background. As Erick Hostachy from Ecolo-chic magazine, Cezame, do not forget to get pleasure, and I will add I agree at 100% but also do not spoil the pleasure of others in do not respect the natural environments
