FAUX PAS in Paris – how to avoid them?
Faux pas number 3:
Faire la bise or not faire la bise – that is the question!
The fact that the French give each other kisses in greeting is something everyone knows. But it’s hard to get used to it, because every region has its own savoir-faire welcome. In Paris, two kisses are the norm. But don’t hug!!! That is considered too intimate an expression for a casual greeting!
