For those of you that don't know, back in September, I got to do a wonderful thirty days of traveling thanks to JetBlue's wonderful All-You-Can-Jet Pass. While traveling, I went to Aruba for the sole reason that it's the first word in the song Kokomo. This photo was from my first night there after I'd gone on a beautiful sunset snorkeling tour that my couchsurfing host had hooked me up with via some friends of his that ran a water sports company on the beach.
I took this photo shortly after my takeoff from the JFK airport after a red-eye from San Diego during my thirty days of travel. I was on my way to see Joel and Ashley in North Carolina, and despite feeling all sorts of jet lag after the previous flight paired with an extreme lack of sleep, I was astounded at the beautiful view from my seat as we quickly soared up into the clouds. Unfortunately, I had to sacrifice quality for clarity due to the lack of light as it was just after sunrise and still quite hazy, but I think it came out alright despite this. I just loved how the city was just barely visible along the horizon.
