How do you get to Khabarovsk?

Here is how it goes.

PORTLAND To   SEATTLE WA

You leave at  1100 AM on Sunday morning and arrive at  1152 AM (on a little prop plane)   52 minutes

Then you wait, shop, read, & chill until 4:40 PM  4 hrs, 48 minutes

and get aboard a jet from

SEATTLE  to  BEIJING, CHINA

You leave at 0440PM   and arrive at  0905PM (THE NEXT DAY!)
12 hrs, 25 minutes in the air,  16 hour time difference (Lost you yet?)

Then you wait, sleep, read, eat? until 2:10 AM 5 hrs, 5 minutes

and get aboard another jet, this time from SIBERIA AIRLINES

It’s Tuesday now. Right?

BEIJING, CHINA TO   KHABAROVSK,  RUSSIA

You leave at 0210 AM  and arrive at 0815 AM on Tuesday, December 13th, Khabarovsk time
3 hrs, 05 minutes flying, 2 hour time difference.

So final question.  What time is in Portland when you touch down?

ANSWER: It’s 2:15 PM on Monday.  You’ve been traveling for  27 hours and 15 minutes and you are in Russia.  Happy & wide awake.

Right?
