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

International Peace One Day

For just one day a year (not sure why it can't be all year) the world observes Peace One Day. QSI Shekou is observing Peace One Day. Each teach is doing something in their classes to at least mention it and then figure out a way to observe it. After my students' writing prompt assessment, I am introducing Peace One Day, (ironically, the students know more about it than I do because it is not observed in the states) then I am showing them a couple of YouTube videos that explain it. There is also a music video. I'm posting all of them below.

Teachers reading this might want to mention it tomorrow in your classrooms. There are a ton of materials online reached by a simple Google search. You can use my Google search if you wish to make it easier.

Jamie and I will be relaxing this weekend and watch some college football games on early Sunday morning. Not sure what we are doing Saturday. We might go to Windows of the World if the weather is nice. It is cooling down here, but still very very muggy. We haven't had a clear day of none haze/smog in over 2 weeks. They say that is the norm here. Oh well.

We have booked our hotel for Phnom Penh. I am happy about it and they act as our travel guide while we are there. We are staying at the
Frangipani Villa in Phnom Penh From there, we'll take a boat/ferry to Siem Reap and stay at a guesthouse there. Then, we'll travel back to Phnom Penh for our flight back to Hong Kong. I'm really excited about going to Angkor Wat. For those who haven't done their homework on Angkor Wat, here is the wikipedia page on it... Angkor Wat.
