15 January 1982

Friday Jan XV

Plane stopped in Tahiti. Because of International Dateline ‘today’ lasted only 6 1/2 hrs!

I remember being really excited at the prospect of going to Tahiti, even if it was for only an hour whilst they refueled. We were allowed off the plane and walked across the runway to a little terminal in the lee of some palm trees. I still hope to go back one day and visit properly. But then I’ve been meaning to watch Escape to Victory for the last thirty years and never got around to it.
