Sandstorms, deceptive


Sandstorms are nasty business. I never really appreciated how sneaky those things are. We were caught in one on our last day of the Nile cruise. Fortunately, we weren’t flying. We were able to continue our sightseeing agenda on the ground. But now that I’ve lived through one, I realize how deceptively dangerous they are. Initially it just looked like smog in the air, albeit thick. By the time I realized the sand was actually clogging up my lungs, I have inhaled a whole day’s worth of grit. Check out the air quality in these before/during comparison photos.
