Dust storm

Around April, Beijing is exposed to some dust storms that have originated in the desert. The dust storm is not like a sand storm where it will sandblast your face. It's more like if you removed the bag on your vacuum cleaner and threw the dust into the air and then inhaled, although maybe not that extreme. During the dust storm the wind is quite strong so is a good idea to wear sunglasses to protect yourself from any larger particles that might have been picked up by the wind.
