After a month in Venezuela, I had finally mastered the kiss-on-cheek greeting. Upon being introduced to a highly respected professor from the local university, I shook his hand and gave the customary peck. I turned around, and was subsequently greeted by my friends' shocked faces and stifled laughter. As we walked out of the room, I realized the importance of waiting for the other person to lean forward to receive the kiss. I also earned scarlet cheeks and the nickname of "la coqueta"--the flirt.
