What is punctuality, and how does it differ from one culture to another? In a club like ours, this can be the basis for a good discussion. With members representing Northern and Southern European countries, as well as those from Asia, and North and South America, Ms. Snezana Pejic from The Etiquette Academy of New England helped us realize how deeply we remain in our own culture no matter where we live. Other topics covered were greetings, hierarchies, meals and table manners. Members learned a lot from Snezana and from each other during the course of the discussion.
Afterwards, Ines took everyone to the Venezuelan restaurant “Orinoco”, where we sampled fried plantains “maduros”, tequeños, yuca frita and arepas.
As usual, a fun day, thank you to everyone that made it possible: Brigitte F for introducing us to Snezana, Snezana for dedicating time to us, , Marie Alice for organizing, and Lucrecia for the photos.
