Argentine Salt Flats

The picture below was taken a few days before we were to leave Argentina and return to the United States. We had gone from the jungles to the dessert, here we were at the Salinas the northern Salt Flats of Argentina. There are pools that are dug out all throughout the salinas, it is a tradition to jump over these pools, a leap of faith they say. My friend capture this image just after I had successfully landed on the other side of salt pool but right before I fell back into the freezing water. Abroad is a lot like this picture, a leap of faith. You’re not sure what you are going to find and it’s a little bit scary at times but at the end of it all every experience is worth it, even the salty ones.
