This morning, I was riding the microbus to school when a soldier sitting next to me tried to strike up a conversation in English. Talking to strangers on the microbus at all is rather strange, but I gave it a shot. He asked me where I was from and what I was doing. Then he said, “Whenever I hear Christian, I think you are a CIA agent.” I assured him that I wasn’t and that I didn’t imagine the US had too many spies here. He then proceeded to try to tell me the plot line of some movie called “Bridge,” which is apparently about CIA and KGB agents. It was all rather surreal!
