Travelling in time

12/20/2011

The Earth is divided into time zones, by obvious necessity – nothing strange there. If only our body clocks could synchronize with the local times when we travel – you know about jetlag! It gets even trickier when travelling in countries with several time zones. Russia is worst as it has nine time zones – stretching from the enclave of Kaliningrad, squeezed between Poland, Lithuania and Latvia, to the Bering Strait in the east.


The USA has six time zones; Eastern, Central, Mountain, Pacific, Alaskan and Hawaiian time, with summer and winter times which don’t really follow the European ones. Here, summer time falls between the second Sunday in March and the first Sunday in November. There are additional time zones if we include territories in the southern Pacific and Puerto Rico. However the giant country of China has only one single time zone!
