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

Back in Shekou

Jamie and I arrived back in Shekou after about 12 hours of traveling from Taglibaran to Manila to Hong Kong to Shekou. We finally arrived about 10:30 pm in our apartment. Griffey is doing great and we are so glad we had a few days about in July to set up our new apartment so we wouldn't have to do it all this weekend.

We counted that since June 20, we've taken 14 flights. I won't even count the number of ferries, taxis, tricycles, or jeepneys we've taken.

We'll be settling in to a routine here in Shekou and preparing to start school.

Since we are back in China, that means no Facebook status updates or pictures on the Blog. You can always go to our photo album at to see all of our photos. I'm not sure how I will be uploading them from now on. Perhaps just from the country or I might switch to Flikr or something until the Picasa/Google thing blows over here in China.
