// travel : lake retba

We are dying to go float on the opalescent waters of Lake Retba (also known as Lac Rose, le sigh). How is this a reality, you may ask? There’s a certain algae in the water that produces a red pigment. Teamed with the sunlight, it turns the water pink. The high salt content also makes for better buoyancy. We have a feeling a unicorn would probably emerge at any given moment. Filling our tub with Pink Bismuth & My Little Ponies doesn’t quite cut it.


When we daydream about a pink Senegalese getaway, we envision packing some of these inspiring beauties..
