Jet lagging

I really should be asleep by now but the jet lag is dragging – I can’t seem to sleep till at least midnight.

Obviously the language is different in its usage ( he died Monday, not he died on Monday) but the basics of journalism are the same. All seemed a lot lighter on advertising – or maybe it is just more subtle on front end pages

And one thing stood out – they are pretty cheap!
