Here greeting is different than in Finland. In Spain always two kisses when meeting women and shaking hands when meeting men. In Finland we just say hello. Therefore I have shaken here in one and half month more hands than in my past 20 years. Kisses and hand shakes are also involved when you are saying good bye. Spanish do not say good bye just once they say at least twice before leaving. Sometimes it feels like it is competition who can say the last word before leaving. Finnish style to greet seems so cold compared to Spanish.

  1. It's not really that only Spanish people do it either. We fins are just really that stiff! I know I am. :)
