The most beautiful time of the year is spring.
This picture is a few years ago on the top of the mountain with a view of Duhok. You can see buildings under construction.
The temperature is not too hot around spring and everything is flourishing.
Spring begins on the 21 of March for Kurdish this is Newroz meaning New Year. Newroz celebrations continue for 3 days long, everyone goes out for picnics they come together brings food and music and enjoy each other's company. Friends and families come together and reserve different areas of big green fields park their car and start the celebration.
What I do encourage around these times from the Kurdish people is to keep Kurdistan clean. These celebrations bring a lot of plastic bags, plastic picnic sets, plastic picnic covers and more with them.
Cleaning the areas after the celebrations will help everything achieve a cleaner environment and preserve these areas for our future generations.
I myself have never been to Kurdistan around spring but hope to go.
