I’m back home tonight after a 10 hour flight from Shanghai earlier today — one of those flights where (thanks to the dateline) you arrive before you left.
My flight left Shanghai at 1:45 PM Friday and arrived in San Francisco at 8 AM Friday morning — recapturing that day I lost last weekend. Sort of like spring forward/fall back — but it’s accomplished in the course of a week instead of a summer. My challenge today has been simply staying awake — trying to adjust the jet lag as directly as possible.
In a meeting in Shanghai this morning before I left for the airport, a good friend highly recommended the book Mr. China for a deeper appreciation of doing business in China.
