There's a good chance that sand from the Sahara desert will fall on the Netherlands together with rain showers on Monday afternoon and evening, various weather services expect.

A large cloud of sand blew over Europe this past weekend, and is currently hanging above the Netherlands. As long as it remains dry, the presence of the desert sand is only noticeable in unusually colorful sunrises and sunsets, according to Weeronline. But if it starts raining, people in the Netherlands may notice a layer of sand on their cars and garden furniture.

It was remarkably crowded at the Holwerd pier last Sunday the 15th. Over a hundred and fifty people had gathered to participate in the popular Dutch mudflat hiking. Called ‘wadlooptocht’, this recreation is a walk from Holwerd to Ameland, wading in the waters of the mudflats of the Wadden Sea. Mudflat hiking is a unique activity that only can be experienced in a few parts of Europe.
