Here, Not There

People sometimes ask me if I get homesick. I don’t really have a ‘home.’ Not in the way people mean when they ask where my ‘home’ is. I will forever call Kenya ‘home,’ but going by the definition of ‘home’a place where one permanently livesit’s not really ‘home’ anymore.

I caught myself calling Phnom Penh ‘home’ as I was anticipating returning to Cambodia from Nepal. For that matter, I guess I’ve called everywhere else I’ve lived ‘home’ as well (while living there, at least). In hindsight, ‘home’ has always kind of followed me around. 

But despite having lived a nomadic life from birth till now, the truth about being here, not there (wherever here or there may be), is that I’m always homesick. 

I’m homesick for people, places, and things. Homesick for all the people, places, and things that will never be here at the same time.

I miss you all my lovelies that are there, not here.

i went to nepal and did some fun things.
photos by paul sweeting.

work sent us to nepal for the past couple weeks. we split up time between kathmandu, janakpur, and pokhara. it was nice to get a break from the cambodian heat and take in sceneries that weren’t flatlands. 

some observations on the cooler weather:

  • i forgot that your phalanges get cold.
  • it’s miserable when your toes are cold.
  • fireplaces are awesome.
  • people look so much cooler on bikes when they’re wearing jackets.

no offense to nepal, but i was feeling pretty apathetic towards it until we got to pokhara. pokhara is amazing. all the adventure sports you could dream of. that last leg of the trip got me agreeing with the country’s tourism slogan “nepal: once is not enough.”
