“The wind of 120 days”
‘Heat Stress alert state RED’ – that’s another very very very hot day to you and me.
I’m reliably informed that Southern Afghanistan has the privilege of a “wind of 120 days”, which blows from June to September. It apparently usually comes with sand storms, dust, whirlwinds and intense heat. The winds can reach 177km per hour, with dust to go with them. So now at least when we wander around chewing on grit, we know why. And as far as facial exfoliation goes, you won’t get much better and at such a cheap price!
