Well, it depends on how long you've been away!
Life is like a river - you never step in the same water twice.
When I returned to my homeland after 13 years of absence, I found it painfully changed. It was like I was the same old person and my homeland had changed. Of course that wasn't true - I had changed too.
But it was really strange, having left at the age of 11 and returning at the age of 24. I was an adult with the memories belonging to my childhood. There no longer was the mango tree in my grandmother's yard under which I grew up and I missed the branches I used to climb up to steal some mangoes. There no longer were a lot of things and then there were a lot of new things. I could have been in a brand new place. But yes the people were the same old same old - so genial and welcoming. So willing to entertain and take me around.
However, as my childhood is gone and so is the land of my childhood.
Seem you are returning much sooner than I did. So do enjoy your trip.
