Lake Retba, Senegal or as the French refer to it Lac Rose, is pinker than any milkshake you’ve ever come face to straw with. Experts say the lake gives off its pink hue due to cyanobacteria, a harmless halophilic bacteria found in the water. Lake Retba also has a high salt content, much like that of the Dead Sea, allowing people to float effortlessly in the massive pink water.

Cherry Blossom Festival, Washington, DC==I grew up in DC and saw the annual blossoming of the cherry trees every year--didn't always cooperate with the festival--sometimes it was warm too early or cold too late--but when the blooming time came it was always spectacular esp against the background of the magnificent federal monuments
