Tomorrow we make our journey back to Sweden. It has been a good trip back to the US, but I am ready to go back home. After all, although I am American, home for me is in Sweden. A visit back to the US is more of an update to my system about what the US is now, as well as to feed any desires I have for American things (food for example) that I might be missing.
Seeing family and friends while I am here has become the biggest priority, and it is something I look forward to on our next journey here too. Until then though, I will continue to make my home abroad, and I will continue to find myself step-by-step further away from the country I am a citizen of. At the core, I am still American, and happily so, but upon that core are built layers from other cultures and customs from not only the places I have lived but the places I have visited, too.
