Outside KIM



– And do young women in South Africa like to drink german beer, like Beck’s?

– No.

– What do they like to drink? Something stronger than beer: some Buren schnaps, or something?

– No.

– Then what do they drink?

– They prefer Heineken.

– Heineken??!

– Yes, they drink Heineken beer.

– Heineken. And when some southafrican lads meet, do they take a bow, like: in FRONT of each other?

– Occasionally, but that’s a very rare thing.

– So, only rarely they bow.

– Yes, very rarely.

– Heineken, no bows?

– Yes, that’s pretty much the situation down there. The dresses worn by young women, in Jo’burg for instance, are rather nice, thou.

– Vintage?

– Yes, sometimes.

– I see. Do people drive fast in Jo’burg?

– Pretty fast. Lots of casualties.

– Same here.

– I enjoy talking to you but I have to go now. In a couple of hours I will catch my MEA flight to Lebanon (connecting via Frankfurt), and before that, I want to buy a piece of olive soap for my boyfriend. He is in rehab in Beirut right now.

– Have a safe flight.
