Going in for the shake/kiss

November 7, 2011
Americans shake hands when they greet each other. Argentines kiss each other on one cheek. So what happens when two Americans are introduced in Argentina? The shake/kiss pose, where both parties partially extend one hand while inclining the upper half of their body forward. That way they can respond with either a handshake or a kiss as soon as they've judged which is expected. Until they do, they look pretty awkward.
