|A smile is a universal language|
The meeting and greeting etiquette in South Africa and Cairo may be different from what you are used to. When dealing with foreigners, most people shake hands while maintaining friendly eye contact and smiling.
Some women do not shake hands and merely nod their head, so it is best to wait for a woman to extend her hand first. Men may kiss a woman they know well on the cheek instead of giving a handshake.
Greetings are leisurely and include time for exchanging pleasantries and social discussion.
