Thing #22: Watch the Sunrise

DSCF1180

Negombo, Sri Lanka.  November 5, 2011.

The sun rises a couple of minutes before 6 a.m.

I know because I was there.  We arrived at that perfect time of day that I’m never awake to see under normal circumstances, just before the world wakes up.  Breathing in cool misty air and surrounded by a hundred thousand jungle sounds, I silently vowed to be up and outside at that time more often and to know what Irish air felt like at that time of day.  Of course, that will never happen, but I believed myself when I was there, in the moment.

I love sunrises, probably because I am rarely up to see them! So how have you gotten all this traveling done?

Oh wow, how pretty!!!! Sunsets are my favorites, but seeing this sunrise I may have to change my mind now. :)

Really lovely photo, the sunrises over here have been a bit colder, but also beautiful, with lots of frost and fog!
