In the middle of the Bering Strait is where you’ll find Little Diomede Island. With 2.8 square miles of land and cliffs that plummet straight down into the Arctic and Pacific Oceans, this island looks like a tiny rock in the middle of cold waters. Here, there are neither trees nor roads. Only a smattering of Inuit Eskimos, who still hunt walruses and narwhals, and live in houses built on stilts. The westernmost point of the United States, Little Diomede faces its Russian big sister, Big Diomede. What’s more, these fascinating chunks of land are separated by the international date line. If its Sunday on the American side, its already Monday on the Russian side.
