I'm from the US and currently in Paris at the moment, and the question about "How long will you stay there/When are you coming back?" grates on my nerves the most honestly. It mostly comes from people who haven't lived as a minority where I'm from, or who haven't travelled much, so I understand that home is what they know and love. Like you, I have pieces of home in different places, and want something a bit more unconventional from life. Great piece!
