Photographer's Note

Comme il faut quand m瘱e vous montrer un peu la Colombie, voici une autre image qu'on a pu voir lors de notre s嶴our.
Ici, la mine de sel de Nemocon.
Nemoc鏮 qu'en langue Chibcha (celle de nos anc皻res), signifie "lamentation du guerrier".
Nemocon donc est un village o le sel repose souterraine et cristallis depuis environ 200 millions d'ann嶪s.
J'imagine que personne ne vous l'aurais dit, mais avant d'皻re la Colombie avec les 3 cha螽es de montagnes, nous 彋ions sous la mer (p廨iode Cr彋ac), raison pour laquelle on a du mal comprendre pour quoi il y a du sel en plein milieu des Andes et si loin de la mer.


As we still have to show you a bit Colombia, here is another image that we saw during our stay.
Here, the salt mine Nemocon.
Nemoc鏮 that Chibcha language (that of our ancestors), means "warrior's lament. "
Nemocon therefore is a village where salt is crystallized and ground for about 200 million years.
I guess nobody would have told you, but before the Colombia with the 3 mountain ranges, we were under the Sea (Cretaceous period), why it's hard to understand why there is salt in the middle of the Andes and so far from the sea
