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

Day 3 – Tiger Leaping Gorge to Lijiang

From Yunnan Province

We slept in after our utterly exhausting day, then packed up and headed out to walk the low road back to Qiaotou. We knew we would have to walk at least 6 km and climb over the road rubble before we might be met with a van to take us back to town. We had walked about 8 km before we hitchhiked with a truck that was headed into town, That truck dropped us off about 7 km outside of town and we began walking again. After 10 minutes, another truck came along and we hopped in the bed to ride all the way into town. After hitting up a store for some lunch (Oreos, almonds, Chinese Pringles, and dove bars we loaded a bus headed back to Lijiang. The ride was uneventful and we made it back safely, climbed into a cab which dropped us off near our hostel.

After a quick rest, we headed out to N’s Kitchen for some western food. I was able to download the VPN and get blogger and Picasa working.
