Salar de Uyuni

When planning my upcoming Mexico trip, I happened to see these amazing pics of Salar de Uyuni, the world's largest salt flat in southwest Bolivia.

The salt mounds reminds me of Andy Goldsworthy's "ice cone". When covered with shallow water, Salar de Uyuni becomes extremely reflective. The human figure in the middle recalls the atmosphere in Antony Gormley's work Another Place (1997).

Bolivia is already on my travel wish list!
