Rendering attention to the “uses and customs” of the country that we are going to visit (for pleasure, business etc.) gives us better opportunity for assimilation or aceptance. Ignoring this may cause problems or misfortunes for us.
11.25 pesos/USD Language: Spanish and some dialects The youth live at home even though they have turned 18 years old. They move only when they want to study a professional career or a master’s. Mexicans are more effusive when giving handsakes, hugs, or a kiss
We take lunch at 1:00 pm And dinner at 8:00 pm With certain foods and fruits such as: Flautas, Tacos, Chicken, Pizza, Sandwich, Hamburger, we don’t use silverware to eat
We take care of grandparents they live at home. In some cities in México you can drink water from the faucet. Sanitary paper goes in the trash and not in the toilet
In México it is customary that the person who is arriving greets the others. Someone that approaches a group of people who are eating would be the one that would say: “Buen Provecho”
When the mexican people talk to and refer to an older person we use the formal form of “Usted” instead of “Tu” / “You” What is your name? Your car lights are on Cual es Su / Tu nombre? I like your sunglasses You did a good job! Las luces de Su / Tu auto estan encendidas Me gustan Sus / Tus lentes de sol Hizo un buen trabajo! / Hiciste un buen trabajo!
Out of reverence, in mexican churches We wear neither shorts, nor caps. We are not allowed to eat food in the church. We use neither tattoos, nor piercing. The men don’t wear earrings.
Doing an effort to learn some kindly phrases in the language of another person, and showing appreciation for the food and music of another culture can give truly positive effects.
My assertion is that people have more in common than what we usually think, due to the necessity of affiliation and affection, participation and contribution. When we look beyond the outside and the appearances, after all, there are not so many differences.
Welcome to México! I hope you come back soon! May God Bless you!
