"It's going to be magical. You'd love it!" I reminded myself over and over as I sleepwalked to the bathroom. It was four in the morning and I just had three hours of sleep. With my half awake half asleep blurry vision, I saw my family almost ready to witness the sunrise at the 124th floor of the tallest building in the world. Sunrise! Yes, out of all the possible viewing times, this sleepyhead decided to purchase sunrise tickets... all for the love of family and the golden hour.
It's a quite a sacrifice for a nocturnal person to get up in the wee hours. I wouldn't mind if I'm on vacation, especially when I'm travelling. But sleep, eight full hours of it, matters when my body is in its full working mode.
Why did I choose sunrise? It's simply because I wanted my parents to have the very best At The Top experience. I have been there on a summer afternoon years ago. Although it was amazing, I felt the experience could be so much more under the golden skies. Sunset could have been an option, but the tickets were already sold out when I made the booking. So, it was sunrise At The Top or nothing, and I wouldn't let my parents who rarely come for a visit go home with nothing! :)
