If you fly to Brazil from
the United States, you will usually leave at night and get to Brazil early
in the morning. After flying for 9 hours, you will always fall asleep
right before it's time to wake up. If you sit on the left of the plane
by a window, and you wake up in time, you might just catch the sunrise.
