An Odd Moment of Cross-Cultural Communication

Me: “Theo, have you heard that the Kicukiro market is closing? A man has bought the property and is going to build a large shop.”

Theo *puzzled expression* “Oh, the market was closed yesterday. A choir was going to Tanzania. Two people have died. The police closed the road because people were going to see those dead people.”

Me: “Hmmmmm”

Sometimes I can’t figure out if it is better to keep explaining myself or just let the miscommunication slide.

I mean, this way I did hear an odd story about voyeuristic Rwandans.
