Last time I went to the US I stayed on something pretty close to my 
usual timetable while there. So I went to bed at about 6pm US time
and got up in the very early morning US time.

Fortunately, this was fine for the 4-day event I was attending.

I think I will do this in future if I can.

One of my sisters-in-law is a nurse and her shifts seem to be all over 
the place from day to day. I don't understand how she copes.
