Salt Production Shelter and a Bonaire Sky

This travel photo was taken in Bonaire in February 2009. This section of the island has small groups of little houses like the one on the picture, which where built around 1600s to give shelter to slaves working on salt production (main economic activity still today on the island). Beach houses where classified by colors, which meant the level of freedom the slaves living in them had. White was for the most “independent” slaves. They used to live 10 persons per house and it`s height is no more than a person`s waist. Today, houses are all abandoned and make an incredible lonely peaceful view.

Here is Mariana Calleja’s bio, pending.
