Translation work I believe hometown is some where you are longing for, but not where your parents or families reside in. Here, I am not attempting to change the way how you define hometown, but simply sharing my understanding of this word. My parents live in a village in Sudan of their whole lives.But since I was born in a foreign country till now, apart from a few memories of my childhood, I feel nothing about my hometown. I know this sounds very extreme, and my parents will be certainly pised off if they read my words, but since both of them don't read Chinese, why not just write down my true feelings here.

However, since I was born in a foreign country, I know almost nothing about my hometown, apart from a few childhood memories. I know this sounds very odd, and my parents would certainly be upset if they read my words, but since neither of them read Chinese, why not just write down my true feelings here?
