My SIL is apparently on African time. And it is soooo true! We were invited to an African party. I asked "what time does it start?" They said it started at 8 but not to come until after 10:00. I told them FYI, that was close to the time I would normally go home!! My kids loved that they were going to a party an hour after their bed time! We were among the first to arrive....and go home. lol
