Last night was the first sand storm I have ever seen! We were sitting having a wine and dinner out on the patio at the expat club Ace and the wind picked up. We all thought it was going to rain, instead it sanded on us! I think half the desert ended up in my eyes and the other half was in my lungs. Trees blew past and I am sure a camel or 2 flew through the air as well. I wiped my face off in the bathroom and the tissue was black! Needless to say, I had to have my third shower of the day! Certainly not something that I really want to experience again, but we have been told to be prepared for March, as that is when the African winds blow and we will be sanded over!
