Cultural Insight
John: Now it's time for a quick cultural insight.
Medina: Some situations demand that you be open to your feelings and say it out loud. In normal conversations with friends, Kenyans will outrightly say their dislikes. But when receiving a gift that you don't like, it is polite to take it anyway. You can always give it to someone else later!
