Our freedom

This is a joint account
our names are Charlie and Ryan
in which we will post many thing to vent
to release our frustration or just to fill the time

We post what we want about what we want
we post things that are personal to us,
in ALL aspects of us from our trips out
to our, well lets say not so public events
which means there could be some
NSFW content so fare warning

earthstory:

This is Salar de Uyuni, a salt flat measuring 10,582 sq km located in Bolivia’s southwestern regions of Oruno and Potosi. Around 400,000 years ago this location was part of the great Lake Minchin, which has since dried out leaving behind two lakes, Poopo and Uru Uru, and two salt flats, this being the largest. When it rains, the flat surface becomes covered with a shallow pool of water, this acts as a gigantic mirror reflecting the sky, and everything else effortlessly! Cool eh? But wait, there’s more!The area is so reflective it is utilised as a calibration tool for satellites, or more specifically; remote sensing instruments. It is considered to be 5 times better for calibration than the surface of the oceans. Impressive!-JeanFor more photos and information on the salt flats see here:http://www.kuriositas.com/2011/08/salar-de-uyuni-spectacular-sea-of-salt.htmlPhoto courtesy of: Diego Salgado Mohor
