Lets ENJOY the GAME! - Ivan Zhai - Republic of Blues 

After two-week orientation seminars, finally I landed in Lambert St. Louis Airport on Sunday. My mentor, Elisa, showed me the apartment at Central West End, took me to lunch and shopping. Elie, a photographer with the St. Louis Post-dispatch even drove me to a Chinese supermarket (百利超级市场) on Monday, to buy food and Chinese sauce for breakfast and dinners.. My new colleagues are so careful about my customs so they always asked whether I would like to have Chinese lunch or not. I tell them that I really enjoy all kinds of hamburgerssandwiches and the toasted ravioli! To me, the best way to made oneself fell comfortable in an unknown circumstance is to find out the most popular restaurants, the most popular food, the most popular topics and the most popular figures in the city. When you become “local”, Congratulations! You are a part of the world you live in.

In fact, my colleagues had done a lot for me and everything is much better than I had expected. Besides that, the neighborhood at the Central West End is pretty convenient for the new comers because in less than 10 minute-walk, you can find a supermarket, a library, a bookstore, dozens of good restaurants, and a 24-hour coffee shop with wireless! It is hard to believe that I can have 24-hour food and drink service here for almost all my Guangzhou friends had been to the States before had warned me that after 10pm, it would be difficult to find such service in U.S. cities except going to bars. But in Guangzhou, Hong Kong and some other southern cities in China, 10pm is just the time for people to meet friends at restaurants, Karaoke and bars.


During the first-day quick visit in the newsroom, it was so surprise to find that the memos about my arriving had been pasted at every corner in the newsroom (even in the elevators)! Since it was also the opening day of the new baseball season, I wish both Cardinals and me good luck and Let’s PLAY the GAME!
