The pink lake

The pink lake or lake Retba located in Senegal. The name of the lake derives from the special color of the water.

The city was struck by its diversity: from narrow dirty streets, to Shikari temples with expensive furnishings.

The next place that you want to visit, is 40 minutes from the city and is called “Monumento Mitad del Mundo” or the Middle, or Equator line. Unforgettable standing with one foot in North plecarii and the other in the South.

If poverty is not felt, then 30 minutes into the mountains and you find yourself in a different world, where Continue reading
