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."

Thanksgiving Meal

Today was a great day as I had my computer fixed, upgraded to 4 GB of RAM for a great price, and wireless installed in our apartment. Sweet! Anyone who wants to sign up with Skype can now get a free tour around our apartment as we can show you around now instead of 3 feet away from the couch.

We also had our Thanksgiving meal with QSI tonight. It was successful and Jamie and I brought a pot of green beans that turned out delicious. The school ordered 18 full turkeys and had one sitting at every table. We bought some wine and brought it and enjoyed the buffet side dishes, turkey, and deserts. Someone even had the presence of mind to show a recording of the Macy's Thanksgiving parade on the projector.

I'm still up at midnight waiting for the UGA/GA Tech game to start.

It is just about official as my beloved Vols have hired Lane Kiffin to be their next head coach. Mixed feelings on this hire, but I think it is a decent hire. Might be a gamble, but I think it'll bring some new energy to a rather depleted UT team and fanbase. I'm still hoping that UT can continue their 23 year winning streak against Kentucky today.

As for Thailand, we are hoping the protestors will move out of the Bangkok airport by December 12. All signs point to that they will. I will be one unhappy camper if they do not. We are convincedi it is safe for anyone wondering, but we'll be careful. They aren't targeting westerners or anything, but they just really do not like their prime minister. We'll should be fine and it'll be a wonderful vacation. See a few previous posts for a detailed itinerary of our upcoming trip.

We hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving with their family and friends. Ours was just another day, but we did get a little taste of it tonight. Sigh...

I know I've slowed down considerably posting on here, but there isn't that much news. There will be plenty for me to type and post when we go to Thailand, so please check back then. I love comments, so keep them coming. Take care everyone!!!
