January and February are the coldest months of the year in Morocco, but the temperature has risen sharply since late January this year, and here in Ouarzazate, the days reminiscent of spring weather continue. ..
There, almond flowers, which are very similar to Japanese cherry blossoms, began to bloom, so I went to the World Heritage Site Ait Ben Haddou for cherry blossom viewing.
Ait Ben Haddou is usually very crowded with foreign tourists as the almonds bloom, but no foreign tourists were seen at all. Most of the souvenir shops were closed, and several cafes and restaurants were open, but there were few customers. It was quiet and a little lonely.
