My First Sunrise of 2020

January 17, 2020

We’re going to Madrid tonight, and I had the brilliant idea of shorting myself on comfortable bed sleep in exchange for bumpy airplane sleep.

Staying up all night feels exciting until you’re mid-course and realize it’s never the right idea. We’re going to Madrid tonight, and to adjust to the timezones more easily, I had the brilliant idea of shorting myself on comfortable bed sleep in exchange for bumpy airplane sleep. The bed got too tempting, so “stay up all night” quickly became “wake up super early”.

And what better way to wile away early morning hours than to watch the day begin with a view of one of the great skylines in the world? These are from one of my favorite spots in front of the Adler Planetarium.

It wasn’t an especially colorful sunrise, but I regret nothing. Onward…to Spain!
