I can't believe it, stumbled out of bed at 4:30. I didn't realize the time until I had turned the computer on and slapped myself on my forehead. That action thoroughly woke me up so I decided to make the most of my extra hours awake.
The early morning is beautiful. I boiled up some more chicken pho and sat outside, facing east and the sunrise as I ate breakfast. Just as the sky was brightening, the halfmoon and some bright stars light up the east, with the foreground of palm trees, roofs of neighbor's houses, and TV aerials.
Now I'm off on a short walk.
