One late afternoon in Burma, Shanan, Christen and I clambered up an rarely-visited temple built a thousand years ago… to see a sunset. Such a simple thing, to see a sunset. If I asked anyone to “Let’s go see a sunset,” in the city, they’d give me a weird look - as expected.
The stones were falling off the steps, we had to squeeze ourselves through the rubble, and we didn’t know how we’d get down in the dark, but when we reached the top - what a view. What a sunset!
It’s funny and sad and good that when we travel, we allow ourselves moments that we can have at any point in our normal lives, but somehow never set aside the time to do.. like catch a sunset.
