Since we arrived the sky has seemed kind of hazy - not smog just haze.
Elder Kirkham called it "harmattan" and said that it is almost over. It
is the time of year that the winds pick up the sand from the Sahara and
blow them this direction causing the "hazy" days. Harmattan is the
reason the sunsets and sunrises are so spectacular. The last couple of
days have been sunny, bright and clear. No haze at all. We are told
that the rain will arrive in another month.
