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

Answer this Question

We asked people in Maadi 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!...

"In Maadi, it is important to show respect and appreciation for local customs and procedures. It is best to refrain from making any comments or gestures that may be considered offensive or inappropriate. For example, it is important to dress conservatively and to respect religious practices, such as avoiding eating, drinking, or smoking in public during Ramadan. Additionally, it is important to maintain the traditions of greetings and personal space and to be mindful of the local language, as well as to be aware of different customs when communicating with people of different cultural backgrounds," wrote a member who made the move to Maadi, Egypt.
