Fun at Salinas Grandes

IMG_2507_enh_1080x726
My colleagues and I greatly enjoyed our visit to the Salinas Grandes salt flats in Catamarca Province, but there was a moment of tension between Federico and Agustín. You see, Federico is only 12″ tall, so we have to keep a close eye on him to make sure he doesn’t get himself into any trouble. Apparently he had wandered off too far for Agustín’s comfort, leading to a bit of a scolding. Despite his small size, however, Federico took it all in stride and stayed close for the remainder of our visit.

    That’s great Ted – really clever.
    Little people can be so bothersome at times although my little ones are now sadly all grown big

    Ted, how nice it would be to chase – or be chased by – a tiger beetle at the size!😀
