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

Daily Grind

This is what this week has become.

Spirit Week continues here at QSI Shekou. Yesterday was Backwards/Clash Day. Jamie and I both participated by wearing just a mixture of clothing backwards and all messed up. It was fun. I'll try and dig up some pictures.

Today is Bling Bling Day (dress up like a rapper, gangster, or thug). We used to have Thug parties back in the day in college that were always great fun. I always participated in those and represented quite well; however, I just do not have anything like that anymore. Sad times when you don't have any clothing to make you look like a thug. Jamie is wearing my old SAE softball shirt with some of my blue jeans. She looks adorable.

Last night was college night. Great turnout. We didn't really do much but did notice that only about 3 Southern US schools were represented. It was interesting to see all of the pamphlets from universities all over the world though and the interest the students had in them.

We would love to hear from some of you either via email or comments below. I will try and dig up a message board to place on here. Jamie and I are quite active on a few of our own (mostly political) and think it might be an interesting debate. Just a thought...

Have a great evening America!
