Back in San Diego from a visit in my hometown, Cincinnati after 16 years. I really missed the Skyline Chili, Goldstar Chili,(yes) White Castles, Graders Double Chocolate Chip Ice Cream with Bitter Sweet Chocolate Sauce, Busken Bakery (I would love a Thumb Print Frosted Center Butter Cookie Recipe like they make)and my favorite rib place was out of business . That was my menu for one day---WHAT DO YOU MISS FROM YOUR HOME TOWN?

Thick, luxuriant grass and lots of large hardwood trees.

The round-the-clock hotels. I miss them a lot
But, am leaving Germany to my hometown this week and will compromise what I missed here for the past 2 years

My youth < sigh >.
Other that that - it has changed so much that there is nothing left to go back to. All my friends and family have moved on to other places.

My racing cycle... the railway bridge where we used to smoke in evening... cane juice after cigs..
And yes .. some fights which never took place but we went with full preparation
And obviously some girls too whom I could never say that you were beautiful

i miss the ocean the most, and the country's highest unemployment figures the least.
i also miss little specialist stores, bakeries, spice shops, etc, in JHB theres very little of that, too many big malls means too many big allrounder supermarkets and too few specialists, which is usually where the good stuff can be found.

The Victorian-style houses. The smell of coffee beans roasting in the morning. The abandoned feel of downtown on an early Sunday morning. Falling asleep while reading the Sunday paper under the bay window. Fresh sourdough in walking distance. Watching the fog drift past Sutro Tower into Noe Valley.

Pine forests near my house and going to the beach on summer evenings after the tourists have left for the day (with mates, beers and a football). Oh, and loads of foreign students

I miss being able to hop on my bike and ride past miles of corn fields without a single car or person around on open, perfectly flat country roads. That's a special kind of solitude that I've never been able to successfully recreate on the more crowded (and hilly) east coast. Not a sound except the wind through the corn and your own tires on the road, and none of that annoying gear-shifting stuff. It's almost like self-hypnosis.
