I have interesting experiences early in the morning recently. I catch my bus at 7am in quite a quiet spot for a busy city. It's a bit of a rat run alright but when the groups of 5 cars all following each other pass by it's very quiet.
Some mornings (few enough in our country alright) when the sky is blue and the Sun is just coming up you see strange things. Plane trails in the sky mostly, lots of them. I'm not sure what it is about that time of the day but there are loads of them, crisscrossing the sky like a big blue hot cross bun.
The quiet is the real shocker for me. For a city that is buzzing and snarling and crawling at that hour of the morning there are moments of total stillness at my bus stop. I catch mine in a quiet, residential area but still relatively close to the city centre yet you can actually hear birds.
There's nothing else other than that, just it's an experience I look forward to most days despite the cold, the rain and the early hour.
