I’m not a morning person. But I am a person who occasionally wakes up at impossible hours when going through stressful periods of life. When that happens, I still try to make the best of it, like that morning when I went out to see the sunrise over the canals. It wasn’t a spectacular sunrise, mind you, but a regular one was welcome nonetheless. I love the fresh air of the morning, the stillness, the sun slowly rising over the old city. And the coffee tastes so much better after a walk!
