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 14 - Luang Prabang

From Jamie Cooking Class

Jamie got up pretty early to go to her cooking class. She forgot the time zone difference and was 1 hour early, so she came back to the hotel to wake me to see if I wanted to go to breakfast with her. We found this really good little crepe place and I had a banana and honey crepe while Jamie had her staple in southeast Asia - a mango shake.

Jamie was in her cooking class until about 4:30 and I just sat around and fooled around with the pictures for the blog, watched a couple of movies, and did a little bit of job fair preparation. When Jamie returned (she had a great time), we decided to go to this ethnic cultural museum that we had seen earlier. It was very small, but very well laid out and very informative about the main ethnic groups of Laos.

Jamie was still stuffed from her all day snacking in the cooking class, but we walked one more time down the night market purchasing a few items and then I had a quick dinner. We tried some Luo Lao, which is their version of rice wine. It tasted more like straight rubbing alcohol.

We retired early tonight because we had to pack and had an early bus ride in the morning to Vientiane. We really enjoyed the town of Luang Prabang and both see us coming back here again on another trip.
