Here's a sight we rarely encounter on tour (and we're sure you rarely encounter out birding!): Salt collection on the Thailand coast. If you're looking for a diverting good read (perhaps for that next plane ride to a far-flung destination?) combining fascinating history across the world with some very cool facts about a critical element of the human diet, check out Mark Kurlansky's Salt: A World History...you'll learn a lot!
