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 6 - Dali - Christmas Day

Yesterday at some point (I believe it was the Hawaiian pizza), I became very ill with food poisoning. Apparently, I have been a bad boy this year and Santa decided to give me food poisoning for Christmas. I was up most of the night doing things that people normally do with food poisoning.

Jamie and I were supposed to go to Kunming today; but because of my condition, decided to stay in Dali in bed all day long. I slept most of the day, ate nothing, and drank some water. Jamie took the time to read all day long, which of course she didn’t mind.

We were able to awake at 2:30 in the morning to talk with Jamie’s family and again at 4:00 am to talk to mine for Christmas day back home. By that time, I was feeling somewhat better, so we figured we would be able to leave Dali tomorrow.

Not an exciting Christmas this year, although we were serenaded all night long pretty much by our hosts at the hostel who had 20 friends over eating, partying, and singing Christmas songs all evening.
