Slave Hut on Bonaire

On Bonaire we visited the salt production flats where they flood the land with sea water into holding ponds and allow the water to evaporate over time.  This process kills the crustaceans living in the water giving it the pink glow.   What is left in at the end is white sea salt as you can see in the below image.  Many years ago, this salt production was accomplished through slavery and below is an example of one of their huts where they lived with up to 7-8 people per.  In continued travels around the island we also came upon this unique tree as well as these remnants of an old dock.
