Salt Hotel in Bolivia

This building, a hotel in a remote Bolivian salt desert, is constructed solely of salt blocks!

The hotel, seen above on July 14, is among a handful constructed solely of salt blocks on the white plains of the Salar de Uyuni in southwestern Bolivia.

The 4,085 square-mile (10,580 square-kilometer) region is the world's largest salt desert. The desert was once a lake 40,000 years ago, and it is now a hot spot for adventure tourism.

half an hour away from Krakow where i live, is the famous salt mine in Wieliczka. inside is a quite large cathedral, carved and sculpted entirely from salt! there is even an engraving of the last supper that possesses 3d traits when looked at an angle.

the last time i was there they encouraged us to lick the walls ;)
