This week's column looks at the question: where is home and talks about living in 2 places. As I was writing, I recalled a question a friend of mine asked me recently: "So you're never coming back to live in Guyana?" It gave me reason to pause because it seemed to have been said in an accusatory tone. It was as if I was being chided for choosing to live in another country. I found myself having to defend my decision to live abroad.
I'm sure that many of you living abroad have been confronted by this situation at one time or another. My appeal to those asking the question is this: please do not be quick to judge our decisions and choices. We also cannot foretell the future, who knows? Maybe some of us will return to Guyana to live.
