As the sun set over the Indian Ocean on Friday I realized we had seen three sunsets without seeing a bed. We left Boston on Wednesday afternoon, drove to New York and watched the sunset while waiting to board the plane. The plane took off at 11PM flying east into 7 hour time difference so that as we descended into Doha Qatar at 7PM on Thursday the sun set for the second time. After a quick one hour between planes we left Doha around 8PM arriving in Colombo at 4AM. Driving from the airport to the hotel the sun came up on Friday, so once we checked into the hotel and feasted on the breakfast, swam in the pool and relaxed, why waste this tropical paradise by napping. So as the sun swiftly dropped into the Indian Ocean the notion of three consecutive sunsets reinforced the reality of how far we have come. We had certainly slept on the planes but not in a bed.
