Eskimos rub their noses to each other while greeting. Any other weird forms of greeting yu know of ?
Benin -- young men often snap fingers when shaking hands
Botswana -- people touch hands, like a handshake that doesn't include a grip, just lightly grazing palms and fingers. They ask each other: "How did you wake?" (It's interesting, in our family, we often ask, "How did you sleep?")
Cambodia -- here, one would put your hands together like "praying hands" holding them against your chest. The higher you hold your hands, the more respect you show.
Bhutan -- they ask, "Is your body well?"
But the Maasai do not grasp hands, but just touch palms, or touch and slide all the way off. An elder (adult) greet a child or teen by placing the palm of the right hand lightly on the head of the younger (one time only, not patting). Older men may greet younger adult women this way also, although the pattern tends to change after the young women is either married or has her first child. This also varies with each village or each of the 10 tribes of the Maasai.
