I always feel quite happy when I can go back home after a comparatively long time. In fact, I don't miss home too much, but I'm willing to see my families again and view the familiar small town that is so quiet and fantastic in my eyes. What about you? What's your feelings about your home and your dear hometown?
Life is a journey, not a destination.

I've only been away for 3.5 months. I haven't missed it much, except around Christmas. Recently I watched a movie that takes place in the US and I missed it, I wished I was in that scene, even though it was a plain boring scene of a family at a highway rest stop. But it made me have the *feeling* of the US - the scenery, familiar items on convenience store shelves, a certain style of highway signs for hotels and restaurants in the background.

For a half a day I really wanted to be back home. Later when I went out into the chinese-world, for a few minutes it seemed very strange, like more foreign than usual. But once I started walking down the street, and got on a bus, and heard so many voices in chinese, I smiled. Then I felt like, "wow, cool. I'm in a foreign country". I think chinese is pleasant to listen to. Well, except for one particular bus guy yesterday - when he announced the bus stops I couldn't understand a word he said. I was really lucky i'd been on that route before, and that Beihai starts with a B, because that's about the only sound I could make out.
I am not rich.  :L

At times more than others. This is the 7th year that  I have been away from my country. Due to circumstances I did not get the chance to visit back during the first 6 years, that was tough, especially when you go back and you notice all the differences around you, like how much your brother and sister grew in your absence, but some things do not change which is good ..... Otherwise, the whole place will become foreign as well.
In the past year I got the chance to visit twice which I appreciate. I also value a lot the means of communications which enables us to keep in touch.
