|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 straight to the bookstore and spent an insane amount on some English books, but it made Jamie happy. One of my favorite authors has a new book in a series, but the cost was just too much for me to justify. I'll wait until it comes out in paperback and only pay double the price instead of quadruple the price.
We then went to Hard Rock again for lunch. I'll have to put up the pictures, but they had it all decked out for Halloween which was pretty cool. We bought t-shirts. They told us that they were shutting down that Hard Rock because the rent was too expensive. They are moving instead to the Hard Rock in Macau. We will be going to Macau sometime soon. It is a Chinese/Portuguese island west of here. A ferry takes us directly to it. It is best known for its casinos and it is supposedly rivaling Vegas in its gaudiness. We'll see. There is an Asian Cirque du Soleil there that we'd like to see.
We are going to eat some fondue tonight with some friends from school. We are hoping that it is as good as the fondue at home. I have my doubts, but hopefully it won't be too bad. I'll let you know. Much more hits on the sight yesterday, so my stern warning from the other day must have paid off. That or people must be REALLY bored. Either way, it is fine with me.
