   Dealing with Jet-lag:
       Time difference example… on Saturday, January 13th at 3:00 AM, Beijing
       time is:
                14 hours earlier….Friday, January 12th 1:00 PM in Mexico City

       The key to acclimating yourself is:
                   Sleep or rest on the flight to Beijing, as much as possible. Also
                    avoid carbohydrates during flight because they give you energy
                    and discourage sleep
                   DON’T sleep upon arrival, remain awake until sundown
                   Upon arrival, take a shower and eat a high-carb meal and get
                    out to see the town
                   DON’T drink alcohol during flight or upon arrival, it will just
                    make you more tired
                   Wake at a normal hour the next morning in order to enjoy a full
                    day (Beijing time)
                   If is possible arrive one day early…and be fully rested for check-
