leaveBob_days = date_to_days(leaveBob)
# Find the overlapping days
overlap_start = max(arriveAlice_days, arriveBob_days)
overlap_end = min(leaveAlice_days, leaveBob_days)
# If there is an overlap, calculate the number of days

else:
return 0

The function date_to_days
converts the given date to the total number of days from the start of the year. This helps in easily comparing the arrival and departure dates for both Alice and Bob. Then we find the start and end of their overlap, and if there is an overlap, we calculate and return the number of days. Otherwise, we return 0.
