We don’t get gold dust in Sudan but we do get grainy, sandy dust that alternates fm being a ‘kata7a’ to a ‘haboub’ or just plain ‘El dunia mutaraba’. Wearing black is not an option. The original and photoshopped pics (it’s not just celebrities who get a touch up you know).
Our sand storms are silky smooth, with a few rough granules here and there. It covers everything like a dusting of icing sugar when its in a good mood but most times opts for the Mother Nature wreaking hell on everything. Visibility is close to non-existent, asthma attacks are common place, if you’re a contact lens wearer you’re better off fumbling around then wearing them….its a horrible time to be in Sudan.
this last pic was taken by an expat a few years back and no the pic is most definitely not doctored… (https://www.flickr.com/photos/50454450@N00/496143363/?rb=1)
