Beijing and a majority of the populated areas are in the eastern third of the country, so
they can all get along in the same time zone.  In the western area called Xinjiang, they
informally observe their own time zone two hours later than the official time.  China
Radio International might not acknowledge that though.  They do have some weird
sunrise/sunset times.  The sun doesn't set until 8:50 PM tonight in Tibet, and sunrise
in eastern Harbin is at 3:48 AM.
