By Justice Namaste. So far, this trip has been an amazing experience for me, as well as a chance for all members of the Advanced Class to become closer. One of my favorite things about Argentina is their typical greeting – a kiss on the cheek. It is less of an actual kiss, and more of just a touching of cheeks, but it is a gesture that seems much more personal and intimate than the typical handshake in America. You can walk down the streets of Cordoba and see people embracing with this kiss much more often than you see anything similar to it in the United States. It makes Argentina seem like such a welcoming place. In fact, when we first met the Argentinian Suzuki group, that’s how they greeted us. I love the openness of this country and how, in many ways, it is almost the complete opposite of the U.S.
