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

Joining the Chinese Gym

Jamie and I are now members of the Qing Qing Gym here in Shekou. Excellent facilities that would compare easily to Gold's Gym in the states. Not quite as big, but it is a steal for only $11 per month. We paid up for the year, they added 2 free months and we are good to go. So, despite losing about 12 pounds since I got here, I'm going to try and shed a few more. Jamie believes she too has lost weight and is excited about the gym's hot yoga classes (they call them "warm tempurature yoga"). We were doing pretty good back home about going to the gym and before this new one opened up, Shekou didn't really have a nice gym. This one is about a 10 minute walk from the apartment and will be perfect if we end up moving schools in February; however, the outlook on that is not good. Wanted to check in. Have a great evening America!
