When you travel you should see a sunrise and a sunset.

Raro sunrise

Sunrises are remarkable things.

Even if you are not religious or spiritual, being present when the day is born is amazing. There is a sense of peace, the colours are spectacular and for one small moment in time the world seems an okay place.  Thankfully the sunrise shown above was tropical and warm and hit me in the stomach the way a harsh bourbon burns an ulcer.

Similarly a sunset sliding slowly into an ice-chilled cocktail is the penultimate way to end your day on a tropical island. The sun leaves blood smeared fingerprints over the azul-baked sky that turn deep crimson then purple and are edited by stars as the night breathes in.
