Christopher doesn't like strangers because he doesn't like people he has never met before. He compares strangers to the people he met while vacationing in France, who spoke a foreign language.

"I do not like strangers because I do not like people I have never met before. They are hard to understand. It is like being in France, which is where we went on holiday sometimes when mother was alive, to camp."
