|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!

We went to our favorite "6" restaurant last night after a trip to A.Best. A.Best is a grocery/convenience store just down the street. We found some decent deals on some food, but it is basically the same prices. They have funny English signs, and I hope to remember to take my camera the next time I go. The store is on the 2nd and 3rd level of the building. You take an escalator to the 2nd floor for groceries and another to the 3rd for household goods. No big deal, except we started on the 2nd floor, the realized they would not let us take our cart to the 3rd. We'll know from now on that you have to go up the 3rd first, then take the escalator ramp down the 2nd. Such is the small details we've had to learn while living in China. We continue to learn small things like this every day.
There is a hill/mountain in Shekou that is popular to climb. The city has actually built stairs to the top and it loops around to the other side of the city. Jamie and I are thinking Sunday would be a good morning to do that. We'll get up early, although it doesn't matter because the humidity will be a million anyway. If I thought I could carry 4 gallons of water, I would.
Nonetheless, we'll let you know of any excursions we go on this weekend.
