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."

Yummy and Interesting Meal

Jamie and I went with some co-workers tonight to a restaurant called Little Sheep. It was a Mongolian style hot pot. It is very similar to fondue except everything is dumped into this one large pot. We chose to have one side be spicy (very hot!) and the other side was regular.

Eight of us sat around the pot and dug in. The pot contained (I'll try my best to list all of the ingrediants):

Beef, Lamb, balls of shrimp (not shrimp balls), potatoes, turnips, mushrooms, bean sprouts, noodles, garlic, ginger, nutmeg, coriander, cumin, peppers, leeks, bamboo shoots, cilantro, and side dishes or some steamy buns with some delicious sugar glaze, steamed buns, and a variety of sauces.

That is all that we can think of that was in there. All was mixed in with some sort of broth. The meal just got better as the spices and various foods mixed together. the spicy side was very hot, but very good. Great place to take people from out of town. We might take our parents to this restaurant when they come in. Not sure they can handle the spices, but we'll see.

We had some pictures taken, so I'll have to get some co-workers to email them to me.
