Photographer's Note

Church at Lac Rose (please click here)... the lake where you could see the rose colours of the alga only when the sun shines and some ripples are seen on the water (on the rigth you could see a small part of the lake in the background).

The lake is also known for its high salt content close to 40%. The lake also has a small salt collecting industry. This is the church of the salt collectors working 6-7 hours a day in the lake In order to protect their skin, they rub their skin with "Beurre de Karité" (shea butter, produced from shea nuts obtained from the Shea nut tree), which is an emollient to avoid the skin to burn.
