I don't mind this kind of thing if the stories are old- proverbs or fables or myths- or old news, so that the whole country's laughing about how King Whoopidoop fell off his horse five years ago. But yeah, otherwise it's very hard to explain how a traveler who took three months to reach the sheltered village where the protagonist lives knows about developments that took place after he left. At least a line about carrier pigeons or something would explain things.
