It is likely that at some point in your African adventure you will find something to be impatient, angry, or frustrated about, and that is normal. Going to a place so far removed from your normal life can be daunting indeed, especially when they seem to have different concepts over things like time. Time in Africa is considered to be in flux, and they tend to focus more on the present and past than the future, so queries into some things such as times of buses, trains, and power outages being resolved can be met with vague, almost indifferent responses. This yet another situation where African values come in handy. Remember that losing your cool in public can cause people to lose respect for you, as it is a sign of having little to no self-control. Instead, reserve your frustration for behind closed doors, when no one is around.
