Hi Emily,

Well, I have met families who travel, so I know it's possible to do both, but it takes special people to do that. I do stop traveling when I come back the United States for periods of time. During these windows I edit photos, work on my writing, update my information on my web site and things like this.
I'm lucky because I get to meet so many wonderful students when I visit schools, in a certain way they all become my children....

Cheers,

Dean

Hi Ivett,

Yes, while I was in China, I ate lots and lots of Chinese food. But, Chinese food in China is different then the American style we are accustomed to here.

Thanks for the post on my blog.

Cheers,

Dean

Ivett

Dear Dean,
I bet your tired. I wish I could go to China. Did you eat Chinese food when you were there?

Hi Garrett,

YES, I love traveling around the world. And one of the great things about traveling around the world is all the cool food you get to try.

See you soon,

Cheers,
Dean

Thanks for the post on my blog; I to am very excited about my upcoming visit to your school. You have followed me on this amazing journey and now I have the privilege to share it with you from a first hand experience.

I don’t really have a favorite thing about China; it is a very interesting place. For sure though, seeing the pandas would rank high on my list.
Yes, the camels of Mongolia are native to that part of the world. Actually Mongolia has a very large desert, it just doesn’t look like the desert of Africa or Arabia.
My stay in China was cold, they were in the middle of the worst winter they have had in 100 years.
It was my dream to travel and learn about the world. It’s a lot of fun to be with people who speak other languages. The most important language is the one that comes from the heart in the form of kind actions.
It was a blast to travel around the world!
Yes, I like Chinese food; my favorite kind was what ever was cooking!
The Chinese food I had was similar to what I eat back home, just more variety.
I never got the chance to see any schools in China. Since 2001 I have traveled 3 ½ years! Long time huh? I never entered a hospital, that’s a good sign!
My favorite thing about traveling is how much you get to learn about the world, and yourself!
See you soon!

Cheers,

Dean

Dear Mr. Jacobs,
We can't wait for you to come to our school next week! We've learned many things about your journey through your super awesome website. We have a lot of questions for you. One of them is, what was your favorite thing about China? Are the Camels in Mongolia native to the area? We are used to seeing them in the desert. What was it like to stay in China? Why did you choose to travel around the world? Did you go across the Great Wall of China? How is it to be with people that speak other languages? Did you like the chinese food, and what was your favorite kind? How was it different from chinese food in the U.S.? What are the schools like in China? How long have you been traveling? Can you describe their hospitals there? What is your favorite thing about traveling?

Cheers,

Mrs. Guthrie's and Mrs. K-T's Classes (4th grade)

Hi Brittany,

Thank you for the post on my blog. The boats were really cool! I was like a little kid again as I explored the deserted ships. I don’t know how old they were, maybe 50 years?? There was no one around to ask.
Riding the camel was fun, and awkward. Horses are much easier to ride.
One day I hope you can ride a camel too.

Where in the world would you like to ride a camel?

Cheers,

Dean

Dean Jacobs

Hi Cameron,

Thanks for the post on my blog. I have been to England only once and that was to London. One day I will go there and spend more time.
In China I ate Chinese food every day, it was good. There are many different types of Chinese food, some is really spicy, other just plain different, like fish head soup!
Would you like to try fish head soup?

Would you like to go to China one day to see the pandas?

Cheers,

Dean

Dean Jacobs

Hi Garrett,
My life is good, thanks!
A poacher is someone who kills wild animals illeagally. They call the head male of the family a silver back, because the hair on his back turns silver as he ages. Well, I didn’t really know for sure what the gorillas were thinking, it was more of a guess.
Do you want to see the gorillas in the wild one day?

Cheers,

Dean

brittany

Dear Dean Jacobs,
I'm from Highland Elemantary School in Mrs.Guthrie's fourth grade class. I have some questions for you and one is Do you know how old the boats were?There were so many things I learned from the pod cast on Sudan.One of my other questions is was it fun on the camels?It sure did look like it.Is riding the camels like riding horses?I want to ride a camel.I hope you will write me back!!!

Hi Alex,

No, I didn’t see any Panda bear rugs. This is a good thing, because they are an endangered species, which means they are having trouble surviving.
I didn’t touch a Panda. I did have a chance to hold one, but they wanted to charge $100 dollars for that, and it was more then my budget would allow. Also, it seems a little wrong to me to charge that kind of money to hold a wild animal.

Thank you for the kind words they are really appreciated.

What is your favorite wild animal? I hope one day you can see pandas, especially the baby ones!

Cheers,

Dean

Hi Miranda,

Thanks for the post on my blog; I am happy to have you along for the journey.
Thank you for the kind words they are really appreciated.

Yes, I am happy to be home with my mother. At the moment she’s not feeling so well, so it is really good that I am home right now.

The Pandas were really cool to see! What is your favorite wild animal?

Cheers,

Dean

Dean Jacobs

Hi Keith,

Thanks for the post on my blog; I am happy to have you along for the journey.
Thank you for the kind words they are really appreciated.

The most favorite thing I wrote about is a hard question, because I had so many cool things to share with the readers. One of my favorites had to be the mountain gorillas in the Congo.

If you could write a story about somewhere in the world, what would you write about?


Cheers,

Hi Jake,

Thanks for the post on my blog, I am happy to have you along for the journey.

I’m glad you liked the Podcasts! They are a lot of work to create, but worth it when I hear comments like yours.

I went to see gorillas because my major when I went to Wayne State College was biology. I have also been curious and interested in nature. Mountain Gorillas are a threatened species, so I went to learn what we can do to help protect them.
What is your favorite wild animal?

Cheers,

Dean

Hi Dean,
How is your life? My life is good. We watched a gorilla podcast. Whats a poacher? Why are Silver back Gorillas called that? How do you know what the gorillas were thinking? As you can see I have a lot of questions.

Jake

Hi Dean,
I am the kid on your website with the Diamond Back shirt. It is on the newsletter about Highland Elementary. I've watched a lot of your pod casts. I like all of them that I have watched. Why did you want to see the gorillas? When you get this letter could you please write back to me? But take as much time as you need.
From,
Jake
