I’m home sick tonight . Awful night. Just want to go home.

I miss Melbourne. I miss our public transport. I miss not having to tip and only tipping whenever and whatever we felt like.

I miss being able to move around freely. I miss being able to flush the damn toilet without thinking should I flush the toilet paper in it or not.

I miss having other food and not spicy food all the time. I miss walking around and not having to sweat and feel sticky.

I miss our parklands and our trees. Here it’s hot and not green at all.

Of all the things we take for granted. I miss home. Thank goodness it’s only another day here.

It will be awhile before I travel again. And when I do it will be to somewhere where there’s no tipping involved and where I can flush the damn toilet paper down the toilet.
