140 Jet Lag
Having just arrived in the UK from Taiwan, Josh talks to ShaoLan about something that affects every traveller, jet lag! Everyone has different ways of dealing with it, but what’s the best way? ShaoLan and Josh discuss some of their tips for beating jet lag, although none of them seems to be 100%.
The Chinese word for jet lag is actually very logical because it literally means “time difference.”
The word 時/时 means “time” and 差 means “to detract” or “difference” so 時差/时差 doubles up to mean “time difference” between two places, as well as meaning “jet lag” when applied to a person.
