There are things that make us all different, but one thing that we all have in common are cultural norms.
 
Norms like, greeting, being respectful to elders and being nice. These things go for any culture : )
 
Maybe....I should post something on the world's cultural "norms"...mmmm i might (wink wink)...

Kajareeeeeeeeeeeee kajareeeeeeeeeeeee LOL

ur Welcome Smile

i have been over seas many times...And one of the biggest cultural mistakes some1 can make is using sterotypes...

Like when i was in egypt a friend was doing the "Walk like an egyptian dance"...and he was advised that it was insulting...I agree, just being simple and nice is best in a far away place.
