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."

"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."

Great Afternoon

Jamie and I went to the school this morning and watched some college football via Slingbox with some co-workers. This afternoon we walked around Shekou again and the afternoon was mild and breezy. We found a place called Muslim Noodles that make the noodle in front on you. Pretty cool! I didn't have my camera, so I'll take pictures of them next time. Everything was in Chinese, but they did have a few pictures, so we just pointed to some dish. It was a tomato based noodles with some beef, peppers, carrots, and some spices. Delicious!

Afterwards, we just walked around Shekou and found a great little park with a large pond. Once again, no camera, but we'll definately go back and I'll take pictures. We found ourselves near Wal-mart again and took the bus home.

Speaking of cameras, I am looking for a new DSLR camera. I've done some research and actually looked at some in Hong Kong the other day. They come with some bundles of stuff like camera bags, extra batteries, and memory. I'll be a beginner, so I'm looking for a beginning DSLR camera that won't set me back a fortune. They had a Canon DSLR that the guy said was an entry level for about $700 with all the accessories. Seemed to be very reasonable considering they are going for that alone on Amazon and 3rd parties. If any of you have any experience or have recently purchased one, let me know. Shoot me an email. I think with all of our travels, it'll be a nice purchase and great investment.

Second week of school starts tomorrow. We're ready and refreshed from quite an enjoyable weekend. I'm excited about my Vols playing on Monday night, but wish I could watch them live. I'll be teaching 1st - 3rd periods.

Have a great Sunday!
