[Tutor] Readable date arithmetic

I have the following method:
t = time.strptime(the_date_we_want_data_for, '%Y%m%d')
t2 = datetime.datetime(*t[:-2])
extra_day = datetime.timedelta(days=1)
t3 = t2 + extra_day
next_log_date = t3.strftime('%Y%m%d')
return (the_date_we_want_data_for, next_log_date)
Quite apart from not much liking the t variables, does date
arithmetic really need to be this gnarly?
How could I improve the above, especially from a readability
perspective? Or is it ok?
