Dry season is upon us and when I was once complaining about the constant rain and dampness of rainy season, I now harp on about the constant clouds of dust and the dryness of late.
I know, I’m such a whiner :) In truth, I’d take dry season over rainy season any day.
In these months, the land is left not only scorched and brown from the sun but also coated in a red film of dust being kicked up from the earth. There hasn’t been a rain since the beginning of December and with each day the ground gets dryer.
The Harmattan is a wind that blows south from the Sahara Desert and fills the sky with fine dust particles that create a haze in the sky.
But it makes for a lovely orangey-pinkish sunset.
Though it still gets pretty hot in the day, as soon as the sun sets the air temperature drops approximately 20 degrees F. The sudden difference leaves you actually feeling a bit chilled but you always can count on tomorrow to be filled with more sunshine :)
