I'm working. A long way from home. It's insanely sweaty. I can't speak the language. I miss my family. Everything is concrete and right angles. But I'm driving this car 5 yards in a scene later so, just for an hour, I'll be a delirious 12 year old. They've literally just cut the car from the scene while I was typing this post. #StoryOfMyLife
