Hey Alison, Emily, Sam and whomever else wants to check this out. Go grab your globe...I'll wait...
OK - Find these three cities on the globe: St. Paul, Minnesota; Gnome, Alaska; and Tokyo, Japan. Now, take your finger and draw an arc (like a rainbow) connecting those three cities. That's the flight path our airplane took to get from Minnesota to Tokyo. Pretty cool, huh? Flying over the Arctic Circle is shorter than flying straight west.
Love ya! Auntie May-May
