Time zones

Emmeline, as I’m writing this you are in bed in Sioux Falls and it’s dark outside–it’s the middle of the night where you and mommy and Sam are. But here in the plane, it’s lunch time and it’s light outside. When I get to Incheon, the city where Derek and Ashley live, it will be getting dark there, but you’ll probably be having breakfast.

It’s a little bit like the sun is a lamp in a house. Imagine if it were night time and there were only one lamp turned on in our living room. If you carried that lamp into the kitchen, it would be bright in the kitchen but dark in the living room. The sun can only shine on one part of the the world at a time, just like that lamp can only be in one room at a time.

What do you think about that?
