FKJ playing an exclusive live set in world's largest salt flat Salar de Uyuni for Cercle. Subscribe our channel for more videos: http://bit.ly/2BINQUh ☞ FKJ https://facebook.com/frenchkiwijuice/ ____ Video credits: Artist: FKJ Venue: Salar de Uyuni Produced by Cercle Executive producers: Philippe Tuchmann & Derek Barbolla Film directed by: Pol Souchier & Derek Barbolla Directors of photography: Mathieu Glissant Sound engineer: Laurent de Boisgisson & Thomas Cooksey Assisted by: Aurélien Moisan Sound mastering: Laurent de Boisgisson Drone: Alexis Olas __ Special thanks to Terra Andina, Conacine, French Embassy in Bolivia , French Alliance in Bolivia & Live Buzz for all their support. This performance has been recorded live. ______ Follow us on http://www.cercle.live Interview: Derek (Cercle): − So, I’m a bit moved because what we just experienced was incredible, but I wanted to ask how it felt to be playing in the middle of this natural landscape and not in front of people as you’re used to? Vincent (FKJ): − Well, there was a lot less pressure, less expectations, − I didn’t see the reaction of the people in front of me that I usually interpret in a good or a bad way, sometimes I do interpret their reaction the right way but sometimes it completely wrong, in the end it’s all in my head but here there’s no audience so I’m by myself, I’m a bit like in my room except that have something incredible in front of me so it was easier to adventure myself in unknown territories… Derek (Cercle): − You lost yourself in your music tonight? Vincent (FKJ): − I was Lost Derek (Cercle): − It was really incredible. − There are a lot of people that have been asking questions online but I will start with one which I believe was asked by Emero: How were you inspired by Bolivia and this specific location ? Vincent (FKJ): − Well exactly, the inspiration came from the location. − Here I didn’t want the location to be just a background to my music but my music to be the soundtrack of the location. − That’s why I didn’t play many of my songs, I played a few that I thought worked well with this location but for the rest I was just looking around and being inspired by this place, by the nature around Derek (Cercle): − It’s true that I heard many tunes that I didn’t know so there were a lot of unreleased. Vincent (FKJ): − It wasn’t even unreleased. Derek (Cercle): − They were never released. Vincent (FKJ): − Yeah, they were not unreleased, probably will never be released Derek (Cercle): − Well we were privileged to hear them. Derek (Cercle): − Often the themes that we find in your tracks are the skyline and the notion of going home: Why those two themes? What inspires you in those themes? Vincent (FKJ): − The skyline is a metaphor for trying to reach your goals in life, make your dreams come true − And go back home is really about travelling − The track I don’t want to go back home that I played; I played because it made sense here, I really didn’t want to go back home, I just wanted to keep traveling here − go back home references the fact that I’m constantly traveling and that I feel good traveling Derek (Cercle): − Ok, I think we’re going to end the interview now with the mystery box which is a little gift that we are going to offer you. It’s a tradition but with all the emotions I forgot to take it with me, so someone is running to bring it − As Aurelien arrives I wanted to thank you for this incredible live Vincent (FKJ): − Thank you for organizing all of this Derek (Cercle): − I also wanted to thank all the technical team, I think there were around 19 people involved who are really incredible people that worked really hard to prepare this show. So, a huge thank you to them because there wouldn’t have been a show without them, thank you − And here is the gift, that we offer you with a strong wind. It was made by a local shop, Lam, and is 100% Alpaga Vincent (FKJ): − I’m going to put it right away because I’m freezing. − Thank you very much guys, I had a wonderful time. I will listen to it tomorrow because I don’t know how the result sounded Derek (Cercle): − It was beautiful − Thank you, you really honored this location − Thank you to our partners whose names will appear on the screen and in the credits − Thank you for being so many of you following us as always and see you in two weeks

Salar de Atacama- Known for its white, salt surface that is produced by the evaporation of its water and its landscape that has been shaped throughout time by the elements (rain, wind, etc.). You can see various colors throughout the flats as a result of the minerals, clay, and a salt mixture. This is also a natural reserve for flamingos (although we did not see any). We did, however, see the brine shrimp that the flamingos eat that cause their feathers to change from grey to pink. Experiences over Things!

Nosso primeiro passeio no Deserto do Atacama foi para o Salar do Atacama, em uma pequena parte dele, já que o Salar tem mais de 300.000 metros quadrados e é o terceiro maior do mundo. O passeio partiu do Tierra Atacama, hotel que nos hospedamos no Chile e teve uma parada no pequeno povoado de Toconao. Essa parada foi essencial para matar a curiosidade da Vitória e da Giovana que queriam saber e ver como é a vida naquele deserto. Andamos pela pequena praça e vimos uma banca de artesanato. Parei alguns minutos para fotografar a igreja que tem a torre separada do salão. Segundo o guia, foi o jeito que a igreja encontrou na época de sua construção para respeitar os costumes locais. Do povoado fomos direto para o Salar do Atacama, veja todos os detalhes no post no blog nesse link

Welcome to my travelchannel.On my channel you can find almost 1000 films of more than 70 countries. See the playlist on my youtube channel.Enjoy! https://www.youtube.com/user/nurettinodunya/playlists Bolivia Salar de Uyuni is the world's largest salt flat at 10,582 square kilometers (4,086 sq mi). It is located in the Daniel Campos Province in Potosí in southwest Bolivia, near the crest of the Andes and is at an elevation of 3,656 meters (11,995 ft) above mean sea level.The Salar was formed as a result of transformations between several prehistoric lakes. It is covered by a few meters of salt crust, which has an extraordinary flatness with the average altitude variations within one meter over the entire area of the Salar. The crust serves as a source of salt and covers a pool of brine, which is exceptionally rich in lithium. It contains 50 to 70% of the world's lithium reserves, which is in the process of being extracted. The large area, clear skies, and the exceptional flatness of the surface make the Salar an ideal object for calibrating the altimeters of Earth observation satellites. The Salar serves as the major transport route across the Bolivian Altiplano and is a major breeding ground for several species of pink flamingos. Salar de Uyuni is also a climatological transitional zone since the towering tropical cumulus congestus and cumulus incus clouds that form in the eastern part of the salt flat during the summer cannot permeate beyond its drier western edges, near the Chilean border and the Atacama Desert. Salar de Uyuni attracts tourists from around the world. As it is located far from the cities, a number of hotels have been built in the area. Due to lack of conventional construction materials, many of them are almost entirely (walls, roof, furniture) built with salt blocks cut from the Salar. The first such hotel was erected in 1993–1995 in the middle of the salt flat, and soon became a popular tourist destination.However, its location in the center of a desert caused sanitation problems, as most waste had to be collected manually. Mismanagement caused serious environmental pollution and the hotel had to be dismantled in 2002.New salt hotels were built near the periphery of the Salar, closer to roads, in full compliance with environmental rules. Train cemetery One major tourist attraction is an antique train cemetery. It is 3 kilometers (1.9 mi) outside Uyuni and is connected to it by the old train tracks. The town served in the past as a distribution hub for the trains carrying minerals en route to Pacific Ocean ports. The rail lines were built by British engineers arriving near the end of the 19th century and formed a sizeable community in Uyuni. The engineers were invited by the British-sponsored Antofagasta and Bolivia Railway Companies, now Ferrocarril de Antofagasta a Bolivia. The rail construction started in 1888 and ended in 1892. It was encouraged by Bolivian President Aniceto Arce, who believed Bolivia would flourish with a good transport system, but it was also constantly sabotaged by the local Aymara indigenous Indians who saw it as an intrusion into their lives. The trains were mostly used by the mining companies. In the 1940s, the mining industry collapsed, partly because of mineral depletion. Many trains were abandoned, producing the train cemetery. There are proposals to build a museum from the cemetery.

According to a report by Reuters, earlier this year, the world's two largest lithium producers publicly celebrated deals with Chile's government that will allow them to increase output of the ultralight battery metal from the Atacama desert. The two companies reportedly said they were confident they could significantly boost output without drawing more than their current quotas of lithium-rich brine that has accumulated over millennia in pools beneath the Atacama. Albemarle CEO Luke Kissam told investors in August, “I don’t see any issue with our ability to get (the brine) ... today, tomorrow and throughout the term of that agreement." http://feeds.reuters.com/~r/reuters/topNews/~3/WgotLM-PbmM/a-water-fight-in-chiles-atacama-raises-questions-over-lithium-mining-idUSKCN1MS1L8 http://www.wochit.com This video was produced by YT Wochit News using http://wochit.com

Potrerillos of yesterday The Potrerillos deposit was located in the desert of Atacama to 125 kilometers to the east of the port of Chañaral and to a height of 2,900 meters on the level of the sea. By 1906 the deposit was exploited in a traditional way by the Mining Company of Potrerillos, by Enrique Echeverría. When in 1910 William Braden moved away from El Teniente, his interest was concentrated in Potrerillos, acquiring in 1913 the deposit. Engineer Braden estimated that Potrerillos was an area capable of rivaling Chuquicamata. However, new drilling yielded disappointing results. Faced with such conclusions, Braden sold Potrerillos in January 1916 to the American conglomerate Anaconda Copper Company, which organized the Andes Copper Mining Company as its subsidiary to exploit the mineral. In charge of the deposit was put to the engineer L.R. Wallace, who opted to mine the mine underground, through the system of sinking blocks. For the treatment of the minerals would raise a plant to benefit sulfides, and another of leaching, to treat the oxides. Also contemplated a thermoelectric plant located in the new port of Barquitos, that would be constructed next to Chañaral. Eight kilometers from the mine would rise the main mining camp, while the water would be brought from the Andes by means of a pipe. Finally, the transportation problem would be solved by constructing a railroad from the mine to the state railroad station in Pueblo Hundido, which in turn reached the port of Chañaral. At the end of 1917 the first works began, those that in 1919 were already quite advanced. However at the end of that year, the copper market was affected by the post-war crisis, which led to the Anaconda to paralyze the work to a great extent. In 1925 the work was resumed under the direction of William Wraith, so that the following year the sulphide plant was ready, and in 1928 the leach plant. By 1929 Potrerillos was already in full operation, producing 73,800 tons of fine copper. At the end of the 1940s the depletion of the Potrerillos deposit began. Facing this situation Anaconda Copper Company began an exploration program in search of some deposit near the metallurgical facilities in order to take advantage of the existing infrastructure. Finally, a few years after the deadly date, the Indio Muerto deposit was discovered, which would allow the Andes Copper Mining Company to survive as a manager of the new mineral that was rightly called El Salvador. _________________________________________________________________ El yacimiento de Potrerillos estaba ubicado en el desierto de Atacama a 125 kilómetros al oriente del puerto de Chañaral y a una altura de 2.900 metros sobre el nivel del mar.

More than one-third of the world’s current supply of lithium comes from the world's driest desert. Lithium is an ultra-light metal used in electric car batteries, mobile phones and lap-tops. The lithium mines are located in the salt flats of the Salar de Atacama, in Chile. Demands for water are growing in the Salar region, but there's a problem, Reuters reports. No one knows for certain how much water there is in the region. In a study due in December, researchers are hoping to get a clearer idea of the crisis. http://feeds.reuters.com/~r/reuters/topNews/~3/9zCZ4q8srkA/in-chilean-desert-global-thirst-for-lithium-is-fueling-a-water-war-idUSKCN1LE16T http://www.wochit.com This video was produced by YT Wochit News using http://wochit.com

In this interview, Tim Fernback, President and CEO of LiCo Energy Metals, speaks with Hannah Bernard about the company’s various lithium and cobalt properties. Tim discusses how the company has two lithium properties in Nevada, which is the only producing region in North America for lithium. Moreover, the company also has properties in Chile, specifically in the Salar de Atacama, where they are one of four companies located in the area. Lastly, the company also has cobalt properties in Ontario, which is the second most favorable jurisdiction in the world for mining. Tim expands on the company’s exploration program in Ontario by noting that their drilling at the Teledyne and Glencore properties is almost complete. LiCo recently acquired a property from Glencore, which has been historically drilled in 1980, and they feel that with the combination of the two properties, they can generate promising resources. The company has had 32 holes drilled, and about just under 4,000m of drilling, and they’ve already started receiving results. Fortunately, the outcome has gone exactly as planned, with LiCo finding cobalt camp style mineralization in all of the drill holes drilled so far. The cobalt grade was as high as about 7.5% in the drill core. Tim looks forward to what the new year will bring as the company is looking to increase the size of its drill program at Teledyne and Glencore. LiCo’s (TSXV: LIC) properties are in great areas for finding resources and are well-structured to find cobalt and lithium. Investors should look forward to the year ahead, as this is a true energy metal company.

Night shot Zoe SUGGESTED LEAD-IN: The red rocky terrain of the driest parts of Chile's Atacama desert looks like the red planet and the skies above are startling clear. Unsurprisingly the region is providing scientists with more than picture perfect scenery. A team of scientists has been working on a NASA funded project to further the field of Mars exploration. VOICE-OVER: The Atacama desert is the most hostile place on Earth. Nothing can survive here. Rainfall is measured in millimeters per decade. It's the closest thing to Mars on our planet. That's what makes it perfect for this group of US scientists who are using it as a testing ground for their version of the Mars rover. "Zoe" is testing new technologies in terms of both robot mechanics and ways to detect life - on Earth or elsewhere. Cameras act as her eyes to track the terrain and she is powered by solar panels. The findings from experiments carried out here will have a bearing on future Mars exploration. SOUNDBITE (English) "The work we are doing here is looking to future missions. So we are studying the Atacama desert to try to understand how to search for life on a planetary surface, so maybe years from now, when we are looking for life, or evidence of past life on Mars, some of the things that we are doing here will be relevant." SUPER CAPTION: David Wettergreen, Principle Investigator Zoe is equipped with specialised instruments to collect soil as well as take fluorescent images with a special camera kept underneath the robot. SOUNDBITE (English) "We flash different wavelengths of light underneath the robot and look for fluorescence so we look for a change in the wavelength of the light that's being emitted by the material that's underneath the robot, so some natural organic materials like chlorophyll and ATP fluoresce. If they are present in the soil we can detect them." SUPER CAPTION: David Wettergreen, Principle Investigator Each morning a remote team based in the United States gives the instructions for the day's work. Today the tests are centring on testing Zoe's skills at negotiating difficult terrain. SOUNDBITE: (English) (with cutaway of hill Zoe is to manoeuvre) "We are putting together a plan for Zoe which should take her around this canyon or this ridgeline here, and we are going to assign its science actions so we can take some photographs, we can plough some dirt and we can take some navigation pictures as well so that there's a few different things we can do. So we are just assigning it a sequence of actions and hopefully she'll execute those."

Salar de Uyuni (or Salar de Tunupa) is the world's largest salt flat at 10,582 square kilometers (4,086 sq mi). It is located in the Potosí and Oruro departments in southwest Bolivia, near the crest of the Andes, and is at an elevation of 3,656 meters (11,995 ft) above mean sea level. The Salar was formed as a result of transformations between several prehistoric lakes. It is covered by a few meters of salt crust, which has an extraordinary flatness with the average altitude variations within one meter over the entire area of the Salar. The crust serves as a source of salt and covers a pool of brine, which is exceptionally rich in lithium. It contains 50 to 70% of the world's lithium reserves, which is in the process of being extracted. The large area, clear skies and the exceptional flatness of the surface make the Salar an ideal object for calibrating the altimeters of Earth observation satellites.The Salar serves as the major transport route across the Bolivian Altiplano and is a major breeding ground for several species of pink flamingos. Salar de Uyuni is also a climatological transitional zone, for towering tropical cumulus congestus and cumulus incus clouds that form in the eastern part of the massive salt flat during the summer, cannot permeate beyond the salt flat's considerably more arid western edges, near the Chilean border and the Atacama Desert. Salar is salt flat in Spanish. Uyuni originates from the Aymara language and means a pen (enclosure), and is also the name for a town of 10,600 people (which serves as a gateway for tourists visiting the Salar). Thus Salar de Uyuni can be loosely translated as a salt flat with enclosures, the latter possibly referring to the "islands" of the Salar; or as "salt flat at [the town named] 'pen for animals'". Aymara legend tells that the mountains Tunupa, Kusku and Kusina, which surround the Salar, were giant people. Tunupa married Kusku, but Kusku ran away from her with Kusina. Grieving Tunupa started to cry while breast-feeding her son. Her tears mixed with milk and formed the Salar. Many locals consider the Tunupa an important deity and say that the place should be called Salar de Tunupa rather than Salar de Uyuni. One major tourist attraction is an antique train cemetery. It is 3 kilometers (1.9 mi) outside Uyuni and is connected to it by the old train tracks. The town served in the past as a distribution hub for the trains carrying minerals en route to Pacific Ocean ports. The rail lines were built by British engineers arriving near the end of the 19th century and formed a sizeable community in Uyuni.

There are proposals to build a museum from the cemetery. Salar de Uyuni attracts tourists from around the world. As it is located far from the cities, a number of hotels have been built in the area.

Full Post: http://bit.ly/2uytEUH Ever since I started planning this trip, Salar De Uyuni was one of the places I dreamed of going to. If any of you are doing the same, I am sure it is one of the places on your must see list. After a rather average night staying at the Hotel Palacio de Sal, a 4-star hotel with one star Internet and 0-star management service, Chris and I met up to do the Salar De Uyuni Salt Flats. Almost everyone we spoke to told us that we wouldn’t get out there on our motorbikes as the wet season was just finished and it was a bit of a bog. However, we were pretty determined to get onto the famous Salar De Uyuni salt flats and then go and see the train graveyard. We were due to set off at first light to meet in the city and get as much information as possible. Chris was meeting me just outside of my hotel. We spent some time getting us much information as possible before we went out there. However, the locals were not very helpful. When we got to the meeting point where all of the 4-wheel drives were taking tourists. Again we were told we cannot go out at that point; there was quite a bit of water. We decided to take the advice of a local and go around the side and then onto the flats. This turned out to be bad advice; my bike was sliding everywhere and making little ground as the mud was thick under the surface and very sticky. Within about 5 minutes I got bogged. Then all of the sudden Sam and his mates arrived and talked us into going out. They told us it is only a few hundred meters of bog and then hard packed salt flats from there on. You could tell by their faces they had a great time. So they helped me and my bike get onto the harder stuff. I can tell you they worked their arses off to get my bike onto Salar De Uyuni. I cannot thank them enough. Wirth just Chris and I, it would have been impossible. Once we were on the salt flats, it was so much fun. We headed to the Dakar Monument and got some photos done. However, everyone wanted a ride on our bikes. I took a young girl and then a little boy and Chris and I knew we had to get out of there to get some nice riding in. All up we spent about 2 hours out there. I think under the conditions that were enough, as the bikes were getting a massive build up of salt. In hindsight, I think we both would have wanted more time out there. But we did it! The next day we went out to the Train Cemetary, which was ok, it looks pretty cool, but there is not much to do there after about 30 minutes. Salar de Uyuni Salar de Uyuni, amid the Andes in southwest Bolivia, is the world’s largest salt flat. It’s the legacy of a prehistoric lake that went dry, leaving behind a desert like, nearly 11,000-sq.-km. The landscape of bright-white salt, rock formations, and cacti-studded islands. It is otherworldly expanse can be observed from central Incahuasi Island. Though wildlife is rare in this unique ecosystem, it harbors many pink flamingos.From Wikipedia Train Cemetery – Uyuni, Bolivia One of the major tourist attractions of the area is an antique train cemetery. It is located 3 km outside Uyuni and is connected to it by the old train tracks. The town served in the past as a distribution hub for the trains carrying minerals on their way to the Pacific Ocean ports. The train lines were built by British engineers who arrived near the end of the 19th century and formed a sizable community in Uyuni. The engineers were invited by British-sponsored Antofagasta and Bolivia Railway Companies, which is now Ferrocarril de Antofagasta a Bolivia. The rail construction started in 1888 and ended in 1892. It was encouraged by the then Bolivian President Aniceto Arce, who believed Bolivia would flourish with a good transport system, but it was also constantly sabotaged by the local indigenous people who saw it as an intrusion into their lives. The trains were mostly used by the mining companies. In the 1940s, the mining industry collapsed, partly due to the mineral depletion. Many trains were abandoned thereby producing the train cemetery.

Vídeo 146 | La espina dorsal del continente sudamericano, los Andes, lleva millones de años creando el segundo desierto más árido del planeta. Un lugar en el que han pasado 400 años entre lluvias, en el que se pueden ver paisajes radicalmente opuestos en cuestión de minutos, y donde la naturaleza más sobrecogedora se muestra en su máxima expresión. Volcanes, dunas, salares, lagunas de agua turquesa, géiseres y hasta oasis en un lugar tan remoto como difícil de olvidar.

We were on a 3 day trip in the worlds largest salt desert, in Bolivia. Turned out to be the worst tour I have ever been on, because the guide was just a driver (quiet all the time) and he fell asleep behind the wheel several times. We drove of the road 3 times. Why? Because he was DRUNK!!! We saw him drinking beer for breakfast. This is a video showing me driving the jeep, while the driver is sleeping of the alcohol. DO NOT TRAVEL WITH SANDRA TRAVELS!

****some song problems, new upload coming soon.... 29th episode of SEE THE WORLD video series, bikepacking from Alaska to Argentina and around the world Finally after almost 5 years - in ARGENTINA! This one starts in San Pedro de Atacama in Chile and ends near a roadless 5600meter pass in the middle of nowhere. Starting on an old but still ocassionally used train track and moving onto the remote and dry Argentinian high desert - the Puna. Its a constant battle with the wind and trying to make sure I have enough water while the least of my concerns are the sandy and rough roads. While tough, muting the sound and adding music makes these landscapes so amazing - i would space out for hours at a time while walking my bike with the wind and wonder where the day went! A short resupply stop and off again!

This is just what I saw, what I like to videotape and what I like to show (so basically lots of donkeys and dogs!). I dont like cities too much and rarely find the courage to film there, Fiambala for example was a very cool town and worth visiting! I for example was too busy stuffing my face with food and scrambling to organize food and research the route for the next 15 days.
