Tone Deaf-The Travels of Erin and David

We are Erin and David, two twenty-somethings from the Washington DC area who decided we couldn't sit at desk jobs any longer without first broadening our horizons. In January 2010 we quit our jobs and headed to South Africa for 2 weeks. A month later we were on a plane to teach English in Tangshan, China… and have been exploring this country ever since. It's our goal to learn as much we can about the Chinese language and culture, and to share our experiences with others. (We have a long way to go, as we are still completely deaf to the Mandarin tones.) Anyway, we love feeling connected to America and appreciate getting comments and questions, so please keep in touch!
