    What I feel is no difference from what you feel upon this place

    Hi,

    I am not sure with this paragraph, it seems that I have many 's' and 'do' - they may not necessary at all?

    I have gone through the national events like you have - the economic crisis, the change of government and laws, and so on; I speak the language that you speak; I go to the city I live next to it like you do; I struggle through the train in the Underground like you do; Occasionally I miss my long journey trains and couches that you may do, so, what I feel is no difference from what you feel upon this place, it is the feeling of being at home.

    If I just use national events without any further instances (the economic crisis, the change of government and laws), does it make sense to you?

    And I want to shorten some repeated word or sentence like,

    I go to the city I live next to it like you go to the city you live next to it

    to

    I go to the city I live next to it like you do

    and

    Occasionally I miss my long journey trains and couches like you may occasionally miss your long journey trains and couches.

    to

    Occasionally I miss my long journey trains and couches that you may do (I am not sure about this one whether is it grammatically correct)

    Have they been shorted correctly?

    Thanks.

    I have gone through the national events like you have - the economic crisis,
    the change of government and laws, and so on; I speak the language that you speak; I go to the city I live next to it like you do; I struggle through the train in the Underground like you do; Occasionally I miss my long journey trains and couches that you may do, so, what I feel is no difference from what you feel upon this place, it is the feeling of being at home.

    (this is a bit difficult without knowing exactly what you mean to say)

    If I just use national events without any further instances (the economic crisis, the change of government and laws), does it make sense to you?
    (I think it is ok)

    And I want to shorten some repeated word or sentence like,

    I go to the city I live next to it like you go to the city you live next to it

    to

    I go to the city I live next to it like you do

    (no. I go to the city (which/that) I live next to like you do.)

    and

    Occasionally I miss my long journey trains and couches like you may occasionally miss your long journey trains and couches.

    to

    Occasionally I miss my long journey trains and couches that you may do (I am not sure about this one whether is it grammatically correct)

    (no. Occasionally I miss my long journey, trains, and couches, as you may also.) It is a bit strange to add couches with long journey and trains.
