VIDEO: living through and loving an Afghan sandstorm

While in Afghanistan with the Minnesota National Guard I was lucky enough to experience the lovely breezes that accompany a sandstorm.  A very pleasant experience.  An experience I will now share with you.  In Europe, Amsterdam to be more precise, slow-tv is pretty big.  Long, drawn out events that allow the viewer to see what it’s like to travel the length of a river on a barge, for instance.  Well, this isn’t hours of footage, but it’s a pretty slow-moving 3 minutes that will allow you to see and hear a small Afghan sandstorm.

For full-effect find some sand.  Chew on it.  Maybe flick some in your eyes and up your nose.  Enjoy.
