lake natron. opposite of nature.

tanzania's lake natron takes its name from the naturally occurring mix of chemicals it contains: mainly sodium carbonate decahydrate (soda ash) and sodium bicarbonate (baking soda). the lake is fed by mineral hot springs and a river, but no water flows out except through evaporation.

as a result, the caustic waters create deadly outcomes.
