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

Crazy Fruit

The photos above are of some interesting fruit that was given to us by our guide, Wayan, upon arriving to Bali.

The first fruit is what westerners call Snakeskin fruit, and you can see why. It is very different and has an apple type texture to it. You peel the snake skin away and it divides into half or thirds with a pit in the middle about the size of a buckeye.

The second fruit is what they call Hairy fruit, again appropriately named. It has a sweeter taste to it and is similar in texture to a large thick grape. It also has a large pit inside.

Both are not amazing, but certainly worth writing home about.
