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

Shipped Boxes

Here is a photo of our shipped boxes that have arrived over the last few days to our school. Jamie and I were meticulous at squaring them off and taping them up. The were nice little perfect cubes. All I can say is thank goodness we didn't pack our fine china. All of it was clothes. We originally paid $700 to ship these 5 boxes, but QSI has provided us a $1500 shipping allowance.

I've added a few more pictures to China Album 2. Jamie went on a walking tour of Shekou on Sunday and took a couple of pictures of old downtown Shekou's food market. They call it the Wet Market because they constantly hose it down to keep it clean.

I've also added another album of some pictures provided to us by Kathy (Jamie's mom) of our day before and day of our departure flight from Atlanta. Thanks Kathy for sending these and sorry I am tardy about putting them on here. The photo album below is entitled Leaving on a Jet Plane. I'm trying a new slideshow look so let me know if you like it or the other format for the old ones better. I've been singing all night the famous song written and performed by E. Brown entitled "Leaving on a Jet Plane to China."

We watched the USA Women's basketball team handily beat the Chinese team tonight. We listened to the same bad British commentators. J. Holmes would be sick and as amused as I was at listening to them. I guess they were just doing their jobs. I am convinced that after commentating the men's game last night, they went out and got hammered before tonight's commentary for the women's game because they were twice as bad.

Good night America. Hopefully you don't have a case of the "Mondays" (Office Space fans anyone?)

I am enjoying seeing your pictures! The picture of you hugging your family goodbye at the airport brought tears to my eyes. So sweet! The picture of Jamie and her mom (I think its in her mom's back yard) is beautiful! They both look great!

Trey loves the pictures of the Chinese signs and would love to see more!
