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

Thanks to Kathy's hard work, we now have our Slingbox hooked up. It works great! For those who do not know, Slingbox is a device that allows us to watch TV in the United States. Here is how it works. You buy the hardware, a small media box, a hook it to a "home" television cable box and internet router. You then download software. You are now able to watch on your laptop (and even some mobile phones) whatever is displayed on that television. You can even switch the channels if you want. Check out Slingbox's website for more answers.

Jamie and I wanted it college football games. We'll be watching them on early Sunday mornings over here. I am quite impressed at how it all works and how well it works. We'll continue to tinker with the settings to get the best picture available. Supposedly, there is a way to get it in HD, but I have my extreme doubts on that. We bought this box which costs only $150 instead of paying for cable over here. Cable over here is not too bad though; but this way, we know we'll be able to watch our teams' games.

Go Vols!!!
