Oliver and I are off to Japan in the morning. We take the 6:00 a. m. flight from Charlottetown to Toronto, then fly from Toronto to Washington Dulles, and finally head for Tokyo on United 803, arriving 4:35 p. m. local time on Thursday. Japan, conveniently, is currently 12 hours ahead of Charlottetown (a nice counterpart to the “1 yen is about a penny Canadian”), so we’ll be landing 2:30 a. m. on Thursday morning Charlottetown time.
But they tell me it’s best to not think of these things, and to get yourself into the headspace of the destination. So I’m thinking hard about it being 9:00 a. m. on Wednesday as I type (despite what the clocks tell me, and it being dark outside, and me being ready to go to bed). Talk to you from the other side of the world.
