Straight out of a surreal painting, this “island” covered in giant cacti is in the middle of an astonishing 12,000 square kilometre salt desert. On the remote Bolivian high plateau things are often made of the materials at hand. This toilet was carved from the trunk of a dried cactus, which is the only abundant material other than salt. For comfort’s sake, all its needles have been removed. Situated along the hiking trail which circles the island, this toilet sits over a hole dug in the ground.
