After being out for more than two weeks, I am startled out of a dead sleep nearly every morning to the sound of roosters crowing. You'd think that after a decade of the clinking of keys, slamming of doors and the tap of boots on the cold concrete floors every hour 24/7, I would be able to sleep through anything. Strangely though, the sound of roosters as the sun rises startles me awake. Foreign sounds I suppose will take some getting use to.
Comically, there are around three roosters who are just as confused as me early in the morning, because they start up about an hour before all the others. Way before sunrise. Either they are old and confused, or maybe they are just resisting their own societal norms. lol
