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

We're Here!

I'll post some pictures later, but I wanted everyone to know that we arrived safely. I've been a bit under the weather with a head cold which hasn't made things pleasant, but all is well nonetheless. The apartment is perfect as we are right downtown Shekou within walking distance to everything. Our view from the apartment overlooks the bay. I'm typing this in a Starbucks with free WiFI (imagine Starbucks giving anything away for free). Our principal took us to an authentic Chinese restaurant last night and it was amazing. I thought we'd lose some weight because of the meals, but if we eat all of them like that, we'll come back quite plump.

We're off to Wal Mart to get some things for our apartment. I'll try and post some pictures soon either as a post or at the bottom. The people here are so nice and the energy and pace is fast. I hope we keep up. Until next time...
