Recently, I met a young exchange student from France. She is a sweet, friendly, little girl who is not very familiar with the North American culture. Besides, she is struggling with the English language. Similar to Iranian culture, French people kiss each others on one or both cheeks as greeting. Couple of days ago, she goes to a party that she knows no one. Following French tradition, she introduces herself to this guy and she tries to kiss him. The poor guy who doesn’t know what is going on jerks his head back to avoid the kiss. While she is very confused by this reaction, she tries to explain to the guy by saying: this is the French way. When we meet each other, we do french kisses!!
