Also, funny that you noticed my earlier posts and wondered how I'd feel a year or two down the line. I also wondered that, and was sure as hell I'd become cynical in some way. I don't mind though, it's natural.
I think the thing about being a visitor is true too. There's a world of difference between visiting a place and truly residing there for a major extent of time. My 'visitor' phase of China lasted almost three years, I think. I'm now in the 'time to go' phase. I need a large, healthy dose of order, social conscience, fresh air and access to solitude. And no chance of watching an old woman coax her grandchild toddler into shitting on the pavement.
