What a location! Positively otherworldly…or do I mean otherworldly…seeing pictures like this one should trigger some great ideas in science fiction writers. Imagine your heroine’s dry throat, the dry, hot wind tearing at her hair, sweat beads on her upper lip, as she squints into the azure sky, following the trajectory of an alien craft about to land…Thanks to retireediary.wordpress.com for inspiring me to think about the less-friendly locations on our planet and how they can be exploited for story ideas.
The travel theme for this week is Dry.
This is one of the driest areas we have been visiting.
The image was taken in the Resonant Sand desert in Inner Mongolia , China.
We needed a lot of protection from the sun, drank a lot of water and hydrated our skin with moisturizer.
Looking at this image brought back memories of the dryness that we have never experienced!
