This is probably my last blog entry. As promised in my previous entry, I will talk more about my hometown Guangzhou.1. FoodGuangzhou is famous for having good food, of almost all styles in the world. Food in Guangzhou has its reputation not only for the numerous choices and styles, but also for its quality. Cooks in Guangzhou are very creative. You will always find exciting new items on menus. For example, when we think about Vietnamese food in the US, we are mostly limited to Pho and spring rolls.

I have limited access to the internet this month so please forgive the delay of my posts. I may also post several entries at one time.Here are some exciting updates of mine recently. I’ve got a job! I had been in touch with Fisher’s career advisor and fortunately heard about a job opening in one of the leading accounting firms. More coincidentally this information was forwarded by my friend Kyle, who is also a MAcc alumnus and a blogger. I contacted Kyle immediately and he gave me much information regarding the position as well as helpful advice on application.

And, here I am, now!Guangzhou is the capital of the Guangdong Province, or otherwise known as Canton. Established more than 2000 years ago, Guangzhou was once the third largest city in the world, while the ancient maritime silk route began here.

This means I will miss a handful of Ohio State’s games for the season. The first lesson for Ohio State alumni upon graduation — get a cable package that includes the Big Ten Network!By the way, I am now sharing an apartment with a Florida fan and a Florida State fan. You know what would happen for the rest of the year.

So I have moved to Boston for more than a month and have explored different places in town. Boston is somewhat similar to Columbus in the way that both the cities are the capital of the state, respectively. Both have a financial district centered in downtown area, embraced by college campuses, with a river running through it.However, there are more differences between the two cities than their similarities. The biggest difference Boston has compared to other cities is its non-grid street layout. Many of the nation’s cities use grid street plans.
