“This is why alchemy exists,” the boy said. “So that everyone will search for his treasure, find it, and then want to be better than he was in his former life. Lead will play its role until the world has no further need for lead; and then lead will have to turn itself to gold. “That’s what alchemists do. They show that, when we strive to become better than we are, everything around us becomes better, too.”

I've been doing farewell meet-ups with my friends here ever since I decided I was going to leave on a jet place and bought my air ticket. It's just an excuse to revert to my Tokyo semi-alcoholic diet.
As much as I am looking forward to seeing everyone back home, I am really going to miss my Melbournian family. Everyone has been so good to me!
