17 April Dustfall

    On Monday morning the 17th of April, I stepped out of my dormitory at Tsinghua University and couldn't believe my eyes. Everything was brown. It seemed that there had been a dustfall during the night. After breakfast, I got the camera and took some pictures. The sky was alternately brown and gray through most of the day, but no more dust fell. It had fallen very quickly just before dawn, something like 46 a.m. It made the news all around the world, but I slept though the actual dustfall.
