The following is a fun little encounter I had while looking for an place to send an email to someone shortly before we left Tanzania. Swahili is the primary language there and I only know a few words of it.
Me: Do you have internet?
Him: Blank look.
Me: (distinctly) In-ter-net?
Him: Karibu. (Welcome in Swahili.)
Me: (pointing to a sign in front of his butcher shop) Internet Café.
Him: (Studying sign) cafe. (Rhymes with safe. Seems rather shocked I mispronounced it.)
Him: (Showing me where the shop is, behind his) Closed.
Turns out he worked in the butchery.
