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.

Dubai has many of the best in the world, such as "the tallest building in the world" and "the largest fountain in the world".
Gold Souk also has "the best in the world". What a ring!
You can see how big it is compared to the next mannequin, but it's huge.
By the way, the costume worn by the next mannequin is also made of gold.
Even if you don't actually shop, it's fun to walk around the showcase with gold costumes and heavy necklaces with flashy designs that you rarely see in Japan!

Egypt is conservative for food, but the number of restaurants offering sushi has increased dramatically in the last year or two.
However, while many sushi is far from Japanese sushi, MORI SUSHI offers stable and delicious sushi. Of course, it is inferior to Japanese sushi, but I am still very satisfied with the desire for Japanese food. The fried sushi is also hot and surprisingly delicious, but be careful as it is too voluminous. The large malls almost always contain MORI SUSHI, which is popular with Egyptians.

When it comes to Egypt, ancient ruins such as pyramids are popular with Japanese people, but in fact, the Red Sea beach resort, which boasts the highest transparency in the world, is also famous, and people who stay mainly from Europe and Russia on long vacations throughout the year. Will visit a lot.
The beach resort is also popular with Egyptians, and the other day our Japanese staff went on vacation with their families.
From the pier on the hotel's private beach, you can see many colorful fish with the naked eye. The food was delicious and it seemed to be very relaxing and very satisfying.

A new restaurant overlooking the 9 pyramids has opened!

Speaking of the Giza Pyramid, the three major pyramids of Khufu, Kuffler, and Menkaurer are famous, but in fact, there are three "satellite pyramids" built alongside the Khufu pyramid and the Menkaurer pyramid, which are combined with the three major pyramids. There is a special place where you can see a total of 9 pyramids.

A restaurant has opened at that superb view point!
Its name is "9 Pyramids Lounge".
There are two types, a table seat and a Bedouin style tatami room. It's completely outdoors, so it can be a bit harsh during midsummer days, but you can enjoy your meal while gazing at the nine pyramids!

Although it is located in the desert, it also has a clean toilet.
Alcohol will also be available after January 2021.
