So, What Exactly Happened to Last Wednesday?

I've been in Australia for a week now, working the Australian Open tennis tournament for ESPN, and I'm still looking for the Wednesday I lost on my 24-hour journey here.  I left New York on Tuesday, January 13, and when I arrived in Melbourne, it was Thursday, January 15.  Wednesday, January 14 disappeared.  Where did it go?  Did I sleep through it on the plane?  How does crossing the International Date Line make one lose an entire day of one's life?  

Interesting questions that I can't begin to answer.  All I can say is that Melbourne is a great town from what I've seen so far, which isn't much considering the hours I've been working.  But I have had a few adventures, which I will share in the coming days.  In the meantime, here's a look at Australia from the plane:
