Interesting post about culture shock in Rwanda, from a CMTS colleague…
“Topsy turvy” is an example of a quaint Anglo-American expression that encapsulates perfectly how I feel, yet conveys exactly no information to people here in Rwanda. I didn’t realize how much I littered my speech with meaningless niceties until I entered a society where they are actively confusing to other people.
Actively confused is pretty much my default state here, too. After a week in the country my head is still spinning and I don’t feel ready to write anything intelligent about my experiences here.
