Hi Ziners,

When we were in Greece a few years ago, my son-in-law and daughter were having trouble crossing a busy street. John put out his hand to slow the traffic, but the cars increased their speed. He found out later that this gesture in Greece, means "may you go blind." We are very careful about using gestures when we travel now.
