A Sky of Orange

The Colour Orange My fiancé and I had booked one night in the tiny little town of Paracas, south of Lima, located on the ocean, in the dessert in the middle of nowhere. We had dinner at a cozy restaurant overlooking the local harbour. "What is the sunset like here?" I asked the owner. "Orange," he replied, "Most beautiful you will ever see." "I would definitely love to see that." I said. After dinner we strolled along the beach, waiting to catch a glimpse of the orange night sky. As the sun began to set, the sky began to change to the most stunning orange hues we had ever seen, making our stop in Paracas well worth the stay.
