Just a week or two ago, we were talking about weather in our French class. My professor brought up sandstorms. Since he was just in Niger this summer he experienced them first hand. Anyway, I thought it would be interesting to post this video because it's taken from the window of a hotel right across the river from our school and it gives a really good idea of how extensive the dust is and how quickly it moves in on you. But check out the little drops of rain on the window...this is why we get excited about storms like that because they bring cool and refreshing rain. Unfortunately, it will probably be May or April before they see another one of these storms in Niger.
