Where are you to see the sunrise?

A friend of mine asked that question last night when I told him I wanted to sleep early to watch the sunrise in the morning. What he meant is that I must have been on a vacation or somewhere novel to have an urge to do such activity. The truth is I was just at home and wanted to enjoy my neighborhood at dawn. No, my place is not a beautiful countryside but a bustling polluted city with more than 9 million dwellers. So I can see where he was coming from. However, the sun rises everywhere on this Earth. It comes to me that people hardly see beauty around them nowadays. It is truly all around us. While it is awesome to go on trips and be on the move, I want to state that it is also great to stay still, observe where you are and appreciate small little things in life.

Yes you are right on this that beauty is all around us and is everywhere if and only if we could open our eyes.

Watching sunrise and sunset is cool. I can watch it right from the balcony of my home. It feels awesome.

I frequently go out and watch the sunrise or sunset at different locations in or around my city! I'm a photographer so it's a beautiful time to get photographs as the light is perfect in the hours around sunset or sunrise. Even without the camera I love watching the start of a new day or the sun going down at the end of it.
