I rarely see sunrise in Hanoi. The city is packed with houses and buildings and spares very little room for a decent view. More so, busy city lifestyle normally means longer evenings and zombie mornings which only start very late after strong coffee. In the city, a glimpse of sunrise is a luxury, which I was thrilled to catch this morning driving to the hospital to see my newborn/three-hour old nephew. Doctors and nurses did not allow me to! Well, it was very early. The sun was rising still! But I am sure he is beautiful. All newborns are beautiful because with them life starts. Just like the gorgeous sunrise!
