Flight attendants begin waking us up with pink lighting and breakfast. I should have taken a photo of my breakfast sandwich: paper-thin white bread with the crusts cut off, a very thin layer of ham, and a thin layer of white processed cheese -- my travelmates tell me that this very thin sandwich is normal for the region. As the sun starts lighting the sky, my view out my window seat turns magical: rocky islands poking up out of a beautiful white sea of clouds. There is even what looks like a vast waterfall of clouds plunging down towards earth between "islands" -- just stunning. My photos do not do the view justice.
