From Jamie's Philippines Pics

We have also had the opportunity to travel to some amazing places in China, Cambodia, Thailand, Vietnam, the Philippines, and Bali. We have archived all of our travels and living experiences abroad; and if you wish, you can read about our adventures by finding the archives on the right of this page and by checking our Photo Album.

We appreciate all of our family and friends who have stayed in touch and emailed us with encouraging words throughout the year. We hope you will continue to keep us in your thoughts as we continue our adventure of living abroad teaching at an international school. For those who have stumbled upon our site, check out the "About Eric and Jamie" section on the right for more information.

Thanks for checking us out!

Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness."
- Mark Twain

"Perhaps travel cannot prevent bigotry, but by demonstrating that all peoples cry, laugh, eat, worry, and die, it can introduce the idea that if we try and understand each other, we may even become friends."
- Maya Angelou

Jamie and I are back from Tunica. Jamie leaves on the 7th to go to 4H camp. I will spend some time with my family, but really have nothing to do until we leave. Since nothing will be going on concerning our trip to China, I've decided to start posting some information concerning China's history, geography, and culture. There is a ton on information concerning China because of their worldwide stage due to the Olympics, so my little addition will keep things simple. I'll do some fun facts, perhaps a few Chinese words, and basic understanding of Chinese culture. I personally need to refresh my memory concerning some of these things. I figure that all of us could use some education concerning China and this could be your one stop shop for learning. I don't think I'll post every day, but you can check back every other day or so and catch up.
