April 9, 2007 Early Morning

I am a dyed in the wool morning person. I go to bed around 9 pm every night
and get up around 4 am every day. Have done that for years. Guatemala is
not a morning person kind of place. Nothing happens here until much later
in the morning. No coffee. No Internet. No nothing. I sleep with my
windows open and can hear people walking and talking on the path all night
long. The sound is so good it seems they are standing next to my bed. A
cacophony of languages being spoken. A truly international path. At about
3:30 am the birds start to talk to each other also. It seems that the sound
always starts in the distance and gradually moves up the hill from the lake.
I can hear the roosters in the yards a little later. Must be
Guatemalan roosters. Right now it is a little after 5 am and the birds and
roosters are clamoring for the day to begin while all of the people are
still asleep. Everyone but me. g
