The longest Tuesday we have ever experienced is over. It began about 2:30 AM on June 11th, a Tuesday, in Bangkok. We boarded a Delta flight to LA that traveled through Tokyo-Narita, San Francisco, and finally LA.
Here are the numbers: the flight left on Tuesday at 5:45 AM, we arrived in Tokyo about 2:00 PM. On that same day we traveled to San Francisco by 9:35 AM and then into LA by about 3:45 PM. All on June 11th. How is that possible? Because we traveled across the International Date Line and we left on a Tuesday and arrived on a Tuesday. Funny how the world works.
With our arrival back in Albuquerque, we had traveled for about 3o hours. The easiest way to measure the time is to stay on Bangkok time and measure from that time zone; using Bangkok time, we left at about 6:00 AM on the 11th and arrived at noon the next day. Fun stuff!
In the coming weeks I will transcribe student journals and include student writing into this blog. I will update information in the previous blog posts based on student insights and include new information and blog posts based on student ideas.
In the meantime, thanks for following these blog posts. We love comments so please post as you see fit. Thanks for reading.
