|Sunrise over Omdurman earlier this week|
On Monday morning my husband, who was travelling across the city to work, phoned me and told me to look at the sunrise. Grabbing my camera, I dashed up onto the roof and sure enough, there was the most beautiful sun rising over the River Nile. According to the weather report, we were supposed to have a heavy rainstorm that day. (much needed, I can tell you) However, all we had was a thick dust storm which, although it blew dirt all over the city, afforded a stunning sunrise.
The Arabic word for dust storm is el gubar
