2014, Day 59 - Salted earth

When my traveling companions and I went out in search of the salt fields we didn't have much luck initially.  They only work them after the rice harvest which was not quite ready but we were able to explore the fields they fill with saltwater from which the salt is harvested.  The summer sun bakes the earth and when the water evaporates the salt is harvested and stored is massive shed that are filled to the ceiling.  All the farmers work the salt flats once the harvest is in.  Soon this dead shrub will be covered in the thickening brine waiting for the salt to be harvested again.
