In a couple months, I will be the best man at a friend’s wedding in Taipei and then turn around the next day and come back home to get back to work on Tuesday. That old saw that the journey is what matters must be right, since I will probably be spending more time on the journey than I will in Taiwan. Anyway, here’s the point of this post: I have never taken a trans-Pacific flight before, much less taken two of them virtually back-to-back as if I were engaged in shuttle diplomacy with Japan. Does anyone out there have advice for preparing for the insane jetlag that this will cause? (I know what you will say: don’t fly back from Taiwan the day after you arrive.)
P.S. If conscious and coherent, I will attempt to take some pictures of Taipei for the blog.
