Here in Benin, we have four seasons in a year: two dry seasons and two others rainy ones. During the great dry season, December to February, we have the harmattan which is harder in the north of the country, sometimes followed by terrible drought. In that season, the temperature could reach about fourty degree Celcius. About the rainy seasons, we don't like them because, they leads to a lot of floods, overall at the south.

The weather in my country (Bolivia) is similar that the british weather, because in one day it can have the four season. For that reason many people go out their homes ready to this changeble weather.

I've been to Glasgow, Scotland twice. Yes, the weather was changeable but I liked it and I enjoyed it. And even raining, it was not so heavy rain but drizzling, soft rain. Besides, I visited in June this year and it was really cold in Scotland, June in Japan is hot enough to be 30 degrees Celcius! And in my city, the temparature may go up to 41 degrees in mid summer! It is cruel to us.
