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

Griffey's 1st Day of School

Friday morning, a co-worker wanted to "borrow" Griffey to take him to her 10 year old class. They had been reading the book Shiloh, so she wanted to wrap up the novel by bringing him in. I dropped him off in the morning by her classroom. I was a bit worried about how he'd deal with all of those kids, but apparently he was a HUGE hit! She said the kids didn't even want to go to recess outside but instead wanted to play with him. I saw him afterward and he seemed very happy. Above is a picture of him with the kids and I've added an album of him with the students in our Photo Gallery.

Jamie comes home tomorrow from visiting her grandfather in Georgia. She is flying out of Atlanta on Saturday at 11:15 and arriving in Hong Kong on Sunday at 7:05. She'll take the last ferry from Hong Kong airport, and arrive in Shekou sometime around 9:00 pm on Sunday evening.

I worked another 10 hours today on my dissertation and changed the outline of Chapter 2 again for what seems like the 4th time. I think I like it now though and I hope to put in another long day tomorrow and perhaps be close to finishing. All I will need to do is add the Chinese research a little at a time.
