Red Lake

8th June 2012 by Helen

Southern Bolivia has lots and lots of salts and minerals.  We’ve just told you about our adventures driving across the salt flats and getting stuck in the mud there.

But there’s some other fantastic stuff here in Bolivia.

There are so many minerals in the soil that they turn the lakes different colours.  One is red and another is green.  All because of the minerals.  Hardly anybody lives here.  With all those minerals and salt the water is not very nice to drink and not even very good for you.

One night we parked and camped right next to ‘Red Lake’.  Look closely – those little dots are flamingoes.  They are a long way away from us though.
