Reflections and sightings from [almost] daily jogging at dawn

Sunrise 5:01 am: All night dawn

Wow. Sensory overload. It never really got dark as the Dawn Joggers crossed the Atlantic (polar route) and with sunrise at 5:01, it was already very bright as their 747 made land somewhere in northern Scotland and headed down over the Midlands before landing at Heathrow at 7:00 am. Awesome view of the Houses of Parliament, London Eye and all of central London from the air. By 8:30 the DJs were at Waterloo station in time to catch the 9:09 Eurostar to Paris. That got them into Gare du Nord in time for lunch. They choose a brasserie near their hotel facing the Place des Vosges. While eating (yes, that is steak tartare, a female DJ sinful indulgence) they were serenaded by the Aurore Voilque Quartet who specialize in jazz swing featuring a violin. Ah, Paris!
