Today is the second day of being 13 hours ahead of my home timezone. A bizarre experience it has been to say the least. It is the second straight morning I have woken up at 3am and not gone back to sleep. Joy.
The journey began with a short flight to Miami, immediately followed by a 3 hour flight to Dallas and a stay overnight.
After a 16 hour 30 minute flight that left Dallas Wednesday morning, we scraped the wheels into Hong Kong around sunset on the following day.
For whatever reason, I only managed to sleep for 40 minutes on the very long flight, despite the very comfortable seating arrangements.
Oh shit. Immigration and customs time. My biggest irrational fear in regards to travel.
Are they going to ask me a bunch of questions that I won’t remember the answers to after all this flying? Will I be able to understand their accents? Will I fall into a coma while waiting in the horrendous line?
