9 June 2011 (-1 in time zone):

Going for a walk around Apia. It is surprisingly hot and humid here. This is Savalalo Market, their central market, close to my hotel and by a busy bus station. I reflected on my flights yesterday and how I crossed the International Date line twice. When I left Rarotonga, it was 7 June, and arrived in Auckland on 8 June, took off the same day and arrived in Samoa on 7 June again. It was like time travel for a day!
