It doesn’t happen very often in our family that everybody wakes up at 1:00 AM, but it has some real advantages. Plenty of time to prepare breakfast (limited to a warmed up supermarket meat- and feta-pie from the day before), literally empty streets in Christchurch at 6 AM and finally being able to watch the sun rise. Can’t remember when I did that the last time, but it’s awesome, as the kiwis tend to say.
