Real men don:t need feelings

My friend Madhav asked me in an email yesterday if I miss home yet.

I:m not sure if I *miss* home (because guys don:t *miss* things, we don:t have feelings on that level pshaw).

I don:t want to be at *home* itself because traveling is still fun, however I do wish I could take a day or two to see my parents and see how they:re doing, and see how my sister and Shash:s baby is doing (I:m sure she:s walking by now). I would love a chance to drive my car on the freeway for a little bit, just so I can feel the acceleration. I really enjoy driving that car, just like I enjoyed driving my old Mustang back in the day. I picture myself sitting in the driver:s seat sometimes when I see fast cars drive ahead of me.

It:s been so long I don:t remember what sitting in the driver:s seat feels like anymore.

I would like to get a western bacon cheeseburger at Carl:s Jr.

I:d like to wear something other than the 5 shirts and 3 pants that I am carrying with me. I:d like to go out looking nice just once. I don:t mind the way I:m dressed now (it:s for a purpose), but when I:m walking through the entertainment area and I see some nicely dressed western people, I can:t help but feel a little jealous that I can:t do that as well, especially in major cities like Osaka, Tokyo, and Seoul, where it actually matters a little bit.

Then after that I would be cool with resuming my travels for another couple of months.

You can fly your parents to one of the upcoming countries so you can see them. Perhaps China or Hong Kong.
