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.
