We were all just reflecting on the math involved with the Time Travel undertaken while going through these time zones and on our journey today we will go slowly backwards in time as we travel west across the pacific ocean until…suddenly, we will move ahead to the next day! The international dateline will do some crazy things. This leg of the journey will eliminate almost the entire day of Friday May 31st because we leave California at 17:00 (5pm) and arrive in Taiwan tomorrow at around 21:00 (9pm) or 22:00 (10pm) of tomorrow, Friday the 31st! It’s crazy!
On our return journey we will experience Saturday August 3rd for much longer than 24 hours which will be quite exciting! The plane approaches its departure, and I am signing off to call my parents and friends for the last time. See ya’ll in Taiwan!
