Video: You gotta see this salt mine

We drove outside of Donetsk to catch a tour of the Soledar salt mines. At first we thought we’d be out-of-luck; without a reservation there’d be no way to go down into the salty underground mines, which must be kept at a particular cool temperature.

After some coaxing (and explaining how this would be the only chance we’d ever get to see the mines), they relented. After clearing it with the director, they managed to squeeze us in.

The elevator took us 1,000 feet underground to see the mines. Pretty damn impressive, I’d say.

Check-out this video. I think it’s a must-see.
