The day that wasn’t there

On the last day of our passage to Tonga we crossed the date line, so one entire day is missing from our log book and our lives. It adds to the confusion we experience living in the South Pacific: Summer is winter, the South is cold and the North warm, ‘Far East Asia’ lies to the West of us, ‘the West’ (US and Europe) is in the East and now on top of everything today is yesterday… When it’s Friday morning here, it’s Thursday evening in Europe (I hope I got that right, correct me if you’re better at this mindboggling concept ;-) )
