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

Next Few Weeks

OK. I've been lazy about getting the last pictures on here from the last couple of temples and the Royal Palace. I'll try and do that tonight.

We are settling in once again at school after our break. Ton of stuff going on here at QSI Shekou in the next few weeks. In 2 weeks we'll have Spirit Week (like Homecoming in the States). On November 1, we'll have Autumn Fair which is basically a Halloween Fair. Both actually sound like a lot of fun. The quintile ends October 16th, so we are trying to end our Units in classes and wrap up grading.

Remember, we can't give anything less than an A or B to a student, so we have to reteach anything the student or student doesn't get. So far, my classes have about 2 or 3 on average that I have to reteach each assessment. They usually marginally pass it the 2nd time. Some do very well with this additional teaching.

That is about it for now. Still waiting on Jamie to give us a report about the food in Cambodia, so stay tuned for that.

We are catching up watching our shows by watching recordings from Slingbox DVR or by our downloads from ITunes. Technology is great.
