  • Tipping in restaurants is...

    by Angel82 Written Aug 24, 2002

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Tipping in restaurants is highly recommended, even though it might include in the price. Greet people by simply saying Hi or Hello, within close friends hugs are common. Usually no kisses are changed.
    People are not eager to talk to strangers and do not come for help unless you ask them to. This may sound rude but it's the way everything works. Once you get them to help you, they will be very helpful and kind!

    Not all the people speak english so well, expecially middle aged and older ones. Young people are taught English at school, they are the source of info in this town!
