Crikey, how would you fancy a swim in this strawberry-milkshake-coloured
lake? This gem is hidden all the way north of the Cap Vert peninsula of Senegal, north-east of Dakar. I read that this lake (Lac Rose)
changes its colour depending on the time of the day – it goes from a light
purple in the morning to a deep scarlet pink by the evening. The colour itself
is caused by harmless bacterias but the high salt content, much like that of
the Dead Sea, allows a person to float
effortlessly on the surface. Just imagine floating about all day there. Wouldn’t
that be fun? Bliss!
