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 7 – Dali to Kunming

I was weak and my stomach was still a bit rumbly, but we had wanted to shop for some more marble while we were here, so we hit the streets of Dali to find a certain vase that Jamie had seen 2 days ago. There are dozens of shops selling usually either vases or other containers made of marble or framed slabs of marble which have the most beautiful designs. We finally did buy a vase and headed back toward our hostel, checked out our things, and caught a ride to the bus station for the 4.5 hour bus ride to Kunming.

The bus to Kunming was uneventful and we are continuing to enjoy reading our Kindles. They have been a lifesaver on all of our trips. After being dumped on the side of the road, we caught a taxi to our new hostel in Kunming, The Hump.

We still hadn’t decided what to do for the rest of our journey. I was feeling better, but figured we’d at least see the Stone Forest while we were in Kunming the next day.
