Translation work I believe hometown is a place you long for, not
where your parents or families reside. Here, I am not attempting to change
the way you define hometown, but simply sharing my understanding of the
word. My parents have lived in a village in Sudan their whole lives.
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?
