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

Finally! Videos on the Blog

Finally! I have figured out how to show a compressed video clip from our video camera. This video was 118 MB because we are recording in DVD quality, but I got it down to 16 MB. Quality obviously won't be as good, but it'll be fine for Internet viewing on the blog. Give it a little while to buffer and load up. I'll continue fiddling with the file size and see if I can get it to load quicker. Someone please drop me a comment and see if it is just my Internet connection; or in fact, it does load slowly. It is kind of a long process, so I won't be sharing too many, but this one was pretty cool because it is the entire performance at the top of the Drum Tower in Beijing. Jamie filmed and did a great job. I'll try and put some more on here as I continue to play with the video a little bit.
