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
