I must still be on Pacific Time

It's Saturday, March 21, 7 am here. I thought I was in the clear with this whole jet lag thing. After being up for 28 hours while in transit (with just a few cat naps), I went to bed early Friday morning around 1 am but didn't sleep a real sound sleep. Last night, I hit the sack around 8:30 and went right to sleep. Victory! Or so I thought. I was wide awake at 11 pm. I laid there and laid there, trying to get back to sleep, but to no avail. It didn't help that my mind was racing about all the upcoming events here. Around 2 am I picked up a book and read for a bit, and around 3 am the eyelids started to get heavy again. The next time I awoke, it was 6:30 am, and here I am. The breakfast buffet and the coffee are calling my name.

Just a clarification on one of the pictures in the last post. Don't let me give you the impression that Jan and I flew business class. We were in coach. That was just the nearest sign with the name of our airline on it (which was Hainan Airlines, by the way).

I received a fax yesterday from our Bethany liaison here in China which gave us a more detailed account of our agenda. One of her assistants will be contacting us here soon and the plan is to receive Aidan at 2:30 pm on Monday, March 23. That will be 11:30 pm on Sunday night back on the West Coast.

Ibuprofen or Tylenol Night caps... they will assist your sleep pattern. Just take them 30 minutes from bed time.
