Wanderlust: Pink lake in Senegal

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!! Africa, here I come!!
