Punctuality is also a prided trait, and turning up late is a sign of disrepect.If your date is picking you up, this means being ready well in advance – they'll likely be on your doorstep before the agreed time.Introductions with strangers tend to be a handshake and formal language, while acquaintances will go for cheek kisses.Conversations are generally soft-spoken and calm, and many online forums talk about the 'gentle' nature of Belgian people.Juan and his urban family live in the Mexican countryside, where they enjoy and suffer a world apart.
