Salt people of Vietnam..The salt crystals take several weeks to form into a solid plate once the water has evaporated. Farmers then break up the salt with rakes before transporting it to a dry location...Farmers harvest salt cultivated in rice-patty like fields in Ben Tre, a village in southern Vietnam. The salt season usually begins in January and ends in March as these are the driest months. Photo taken Friday, March 21, 2008. Kevin German /
