Fun With Time Zones

Crossing from northern Chile to Peru actually gains you two hours. The entirety of Peru is on Eastern Standard Time and Chile is two hours ahead. That means that in eastern Peru the sun sets around 6:30, even though it is the middle of summer!

Wenn man von Nordchile nach Peru fährt, bekommt man zwei Stunden geschenkt. Das ganze Land in Peru ist in der “Eastern Standard Time” (UTC−5h bis UTC−4h) und Chile ist zwei Stunden voraus. Das bedeutet, dass die Sonne im östlichen Teil von Peru um 18:30 Uhr untergeht, obwohl hier Hochsommer ist!
