What cultural faux pas should I try to avoid making in Algeria?

Live in Algeria? Answer this Question

We asked people in Algeria if they could share any humorous cultural blunders they commited. For new expats, keep in mind that these incidents are an inevitable part of expat life. Learning to laugh about them is the key!:

"I went to a store, and speak English, the seller yell ' eee sinuiyyaa', which means, she is a Chinese. I am not a Chinese, but here people call all non-european foreigners Chinese," remarked another expat in Annaba, Algeria.

"In my husband's village in the Berber mountains they have two fountains, one for female and the other for the men who shares with the donkeys. Needless to day there were many moments when I forgot that I was neither a man or a donkey and accidentally went to the wrong fountain," said another expat in Algiers.

"Coffee shops here are for a male clients. I sat inside one having coffee one time and everyone looked like I was crazy," remarked another expat who made the move to Blida.
