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

Answer this Question

We asked people in Pezenas 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!...

"Oh God yes! I once asked a guy about making a local dish. He told me his mother made the best. The next thing I know we're on his little moto going to her house -- where she gives me a cooking lesson, feeds me, and we spend the night learning why the local wine is better. People here are really nice, outgoing, sharing. If you break through the first barriers, you've made it. Another time I asked someone where they got a really nice shirt, the next day I got an all morning shopping tour," commented one expat who made the move to Pezenas, France.

"In Pezenas, it is important to respect local customs, so it is important to avoid unwittingly causing offense. It is considered rude to arrive late when meeting people, so it is important to be punctual. Pointing with a finger is also seen as impolite, and instead it is better to indicate a direction with a nod. Furthermore, it is important to respond to polite inquiries with a formal and respectful answer, rather than an overly casual one. To avoid appearing disrespectful, it is best to dress modestly in public and avoid wearing shorts or sleeveless shirts," remarked another expat in Pezenas, France, France.
