Even glimpsed through a tangle of utility wires, a sunset in Guadalajara is worth pausing for.
Sunset signals the end of the workday, and the beginning of an evening of relaxation with family for most of the area’s residents.
Of course, there are those who have to toil through the night: emergency personnel, police officers, firefighters, gasoline station workers (no self-service gas pumps in Mexico), and convenience store clerks, to name a few.
But even those who must work while others sleep can—and often do—stop for a moment at sundown, and refresh their spirits by taking in the fiery spectacle.

one line of ink at a time—
plume of fragrant smoke
