'By the time we got to the street, i could see the first rays of the sun, a cool pink glow in the eastern sky. The fact that i'd spent all night in a cell and a courtroom made that morning one of the most beautiful i've ever seen. There was a peace and brightness about it, a chilly Caribbean dawn after a night in a filthy jail. I looked at the ships and the sea beyond them. I felt crazy to be free with a whole day ahead of me.
Then i realized i would sleep most of the day and my excitement disappeared.'
Hunter S Thompson
