I have never been outside Kenya but if I could choose one country I’d love to visit, I would choose Libya (it is in my bucket list ).
Some of you have travelled widely and have a chance to view Kenya from an outsider’s perspective. Some of you have taken citizenship elsewhere and sworn never to come back.
What are some of the best countries that you have been to? Did you experience any culture shocks?
To those with foreigner friends, what culture shocks do visitors experience in Kenya?
I experienced culture shock in Nyeri when an elderly woman spat and rubbed spittle in my palms after I gave her ksh 1000. Initially, I was naturally disgusted but I appreciated when I learnt of the symbolism.
in Rwanda those guys share beer, yaani Primus moja wanakunywa watu around 2 or 3, meanwhile Colombo na mabeste wako na Primus ama Mitsingi mbili mbili, NOTE Beer is between 750ml to 1lt, kweli si ni Extravagant na wabinafsi
The Luba of Zambia. Those guys think their words through properly before uttering anything. So some guy will be there with their finger on their chin, thinking, and muttering to himself some very interesting word - The first time we experienced this, we all burst out laughing, because the word means something else. Booo, or mbooo. We soon got accustomed to the wazees muttering under their breath, “mboo” before giving you any conclusive answers to anything.
Zambia is cool.
