jet lag

Sitting on a bed when your body thinks its 3am is like an alcoholic sitting in a bar.
Once you’ve bargained with yourself that a short nap won’t hurt your adjusting to the local time the first thing to go is your inhibitions to snoozing or resetting the alarm for just another hour more. You may get woken up by the hotel staff who don’t expect you to be sleeping at that time of day. You slur your speech and say anything to make them go away and return to that siren call.

If you can’t tell, I caved and slept for a few hours after arriving here in Johannesburg this morning on a +2 days set of flights from Portland, Oregon. I suspect I’ll still be able to sleep tonight, then it’s off early to the lands of no internet. Catch y’all on the flip side.
