Jet-Lag Sucks!

After two weeks in China, Carolyn and I are struggling mightily with Jet-lag. It's 15 hours earlier here in Dawson than it is in Beijing, and our internal clocks are not adjusting. We finally got to sleep at 7:00 a.m. this morning and got up at almost 2:00 this afternoon -- which would have been perfectly normal in China (being 10:00 p.m. and 5:00 a.m., respectively, there).

At least it now gets dark at night in Dawson (we had 21 hours of daylight when we first arrived, and that played havoc with our internal clocks, too). We arrive back in Toronto (which is three hours ahead of Dawson!) in 20 days -- hopefully by that point we'll at least be on Dawson time ...

Robert, I've heard that one of the best ways of dealing with that kind of stuff is to stay up later each "night" until you've pushed sleep time back to normal. It's apparently easier to adjust to longer days than shorter ones. Faster, but more extreme is to stay up for over a day and a half... Good luck getting back on track.
