Will Miss #30 - saying anything in public
After you spend awhile in a country where the vast majority of people don't understand what you're saying, you start to lose the public speaking self-censorship that was second nature back home. You swear anywhere, anytime. You talk about your body's more disgusting output in ways you might not normally. And, you sometimes remark on the bad behavior or odors of people around you in a manner which you'd refrain from if you knew it might cause an altercation if they understood
I'll miss being able to freely express whatever I want, however I want.
