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 15 - Vientiane to Bangkok

Jamie and I again woke early for an hour and a half flight to Bangkok. Surprisingly, the airport in Vientiane looks new and was very clean and efficient. The flight was very pleasant and we arrived on time in Bangkok, caught a quick cab to our hotel, the Bossotel Inn right next to the Shangri-la, and settled in.

We then headed out to our favorite mall in Bangkok, the Paragon, to eat some Mexican food as well as check out the movie selection. This mall serves the elite in Bangkok and even has a Lamborghini and Hummer dealership in the mall itself (although last year I walked into the Lamborghini dealership and the girl didn't even look up at me. And to think I was going to purchase 4 from her), but we like it for the food and theather. I still say this movie theater is the nicest I have ever seen and the prices were about $8 total for us to see the new Sherlock Holmes movie, which I thought was very good.

We then ate some ice cream (which cost more than the movie) and then headed back to our hotel. I walked around and got my bearings on the place and bought a few items we might need for the fair and then decided to catch up on my blogging.

I'll keep everyone posted of breaking news regarding our job search. We are moderately optimistic about our chances of landing a decent job. We'll see...
