Rotary International is composed of clubs around the world.  The most recent Rotarian Magazine had a piece on global etiquette.  Did you know, when getting off an elevator in Poland, say “thank you” to your fellow riders.  In Brazil, call people by their first name, while in Germany do not address a person who is not a friend or longtime acquaintance by their first name.  In Peru, kiss a woman on the cheek when you are introduced to her by a friend.  In Korea, don’t pick up rice or soup bowls from the table when eating, but in Japan and China, is is appropriate to do so.  Finally, in Japan, bow, don’t hug as a greeting.  And don’t talk on the phone on public transportation.  It is considered rude.
