Swahili Lesson: Telling Time

Today at school we learned how to tell time in Swahili... it's super confusing. The clock starts at sunrise which is considered to be 6, making 6-7 the first hour of the day.
So... 7 is 1, 8 is 2, 9 is 3, and so on. Basically you read the clock as the opposite of what it says...
I can't explain this...
Maybe this video will help: Telling time in Swahili
