Double Monday

Posted on 2006/02/24 05:22:25 (February 2006).

[Monday 20th February]
So today I flew from Tokyo to Seattle. It is a 9 hour flight, taking off around 3. Given that the time difference between Tokyo and Seattle is a staggering 17 hours over the IDL, it means I end up going through Monday twice. I was loathed to fly on Sunday this time, as I really wanted to spend an extra day with Chie. So the upshot was that I arrived in Seattle around 7AM on Monday, and then proceeded to do a full day's work, having not slept at all on the plane. In a crazy sense I had commuted from one continent to another. It was.... interesting. By the time I got into the office in Seattle at 9AM, I had already been awake about 18 hours. I managed to stay awake right through the day, and even went out for a bit in the evening. In total by the time I finally got to bed I had been awake over 30 hours!
