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."

"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."

Not really an update. Slow week here in Shekou and at school. On the homefront, it is Bama week in the Vol Nation. I'm am feeling it now that I won't be there this weekend. Knoxville in the fall on a Saturday for the Bama game is the closest thing you can get to heaven. If Bama weren't in town, it might be heaven. Here's to hoping that UT can put a 1 in teh L column of the Tide.

In other news, there really isn't any. Jamie and I will represent our alma maters tomorrow evening at the college fair. Not really sure what that entells other than us wear our MTSU and UGA shirts and sitting behind a table. I haven't been there in 8 years, but MTSU used to be a great place for the Recording Industry. I guess if any students here want to go into that I can direct them to MTSU.

This week is Spirit Week at QSI. Monday was Blue and Gold day and today was crazy hair day. I didn't get pictures, but just imagine Jamie's hair looking all messed up and mine being spiked up and you'll get the picture. Tomorrow is Backwards/Clash Day. I would say about 50% of the students are participating. Most just wait until they see if their friends are doing it and then they try and change their appearance. I'll update you tomorrow on the theme. I'll find some pictures somewhere that I'm sure someone has taken.

Wow. For nothing to say, I've made this a pretty long post. I'll get back to my regular brilliant posting later.

Trey and I are going to the UT/AL game this weekend. I hope that it is not a terribly miserable experience and the Vols can at least hold their own. We shall see. At least tailgating will be fun!
