My flight into Guadalajara arrived after midnight, and by the time I retrieved my luggage, and the taxi delivered me to the apartment where I’m staying for the next two weeks, it was 1:30 a.m. Sleep didn’t overtake me until after 2:30 a.m. A scant five hours later, I woke up and walked out on the terraza to savor the sunrise. The heavenly pyrotechnics did not disappoint me.
how long have you been singing,
sparrow at my door?
