Wanderlust: Lake Retba, Senegal

via Pinterest
And I quote,  "Senegal's Lake Retba, or as the French refer to it Lac Rose, is pinker than any milkshake. Experts say the lake gives off its pink hue due to cyanobacteria, a harmless halophilic bacteria found in the water." Lake Retba has a high salt content, much like that of the Dead Sea, allowing people to float effortlessly in the massive pink water."
