Since I explored Salar de Uyuni one year ago a lot has changed in Bolivia. Long-time native president Evo Morales, who had to resign and leave the country following a coup, says is worried about foreign countries being interested in putting their hands on local lithium resources. Uyuni is believed to store 50% of the precious metal used for powering modern electric devices.

The region on Mount Roraima, between Venezuela, Brazil and Guyan, is one of most preserved in the world. That’s because natives still have a profound reverence toward nature.

The water in Lençois communicates by underground channels. This lets some small fishes find their way to the sweet water lagoons, those keeping local fishermen busy during dry season.

Lençóis Maranhenses are a faux-desert in the North-East of Brazil.
The rainy season ends up filling the spaces between the bright sand dunes, those creating sweet water lagoons.
Right now this unique landscape is being reached by an oil spill that happened off the coast of the country.

Photo taken at Everglades, Florida
“Gladesmen” were local people from the Everglades who built small homes and small boats (“glade skiffs”) that could adequately navigate through the narrow waterways. These men would leave for weeks or months at a time, building temporary encampments while they hunted and fished in almost complete isolation.
Today you can still find a small handful of people still living near the canals.
