Back from Tonga and still jetlagged. Our flight left Tongatapu at 9:00pm on Tuesday night, flew for 90 minutes and landed in Apia, Samoa at 10:00pm MONDAY night. From Samoa, we flew to Los Angeles and landed there at 4:00pm Tuesday afternoon, 5 hours earlier than we left Tonga. Crossing the International Date Line really messed up my internal clock.The trip to Tonga was well worth it. I’ve posted some photos from there. More than anything, it helped me learn about the place, the language, and the culture. Of course, it was a thrill to see the places where William Mariner had been about 200 years ago.
