Half a World Away

This week we are on whirlwind trip of pacific island countries. Today we are video calling and sending video mail from Singapore. Even though we are on the other side of the world, we can still have great quality video calls back home.

Singapore is on the complete opposite side of the globe and exactly 9 hours and a time zone away from California. It makes figuring out the time zone thing tricky - add 9, subtract a day, or something like that.

It is a bit of effort getting here. After hours and hours of plane, trains, and taxicabs driving on the left side of the road, it sure is nice to see a familiar smiling face.
