Anecdote #1

Here in Uganda public displays of affection are severely frowned upon, even holding hands. And yet, it is a cultural custom that when men are talking, especially about something to which the other person may disagree, they should hold hands for the duration. One day going to class, I happened to see two armed policeman walking down the road with their weapons slung. This would not be out of the ordinary except, they were also holding hands. And their other hands were on the most mass produced assault weapon in human history. The law is a funny thing here.
