In Saudi Arabia , we say "Alsalam Alaikum" as Hello word. We often shake hands in a public life , sometimes we don't meet each others for along time so we hug and kiss .

In Italy and in particulary in Sicily, to say hello to our friends we say "Ciao" and after or in the sametime we shake hands and we kiss in both cheek.

In Brazil we usually share hugs a lot. For men, we shake hand and give a soft hug. Foro women, we usually kiss on face one, two or three times, it depends what part of the country you are.

In my country people say hello with a kiss. I heard the foreigners wonder about that, because the Argentines greet and say goodbye with a kiss for each and every one of the people who are present, whether at work, in the classroom, in the pub, although there is not much trust between they... everyday! It's a bit exhausting for me, but they think it's impolite if you just say "Hola!" or "Chau!"
