Hello everyone. Here in Brazil is very common, when we met our friend, we shake hands and kisses each other. Well, but during this time, according to coronavirus pandemic, we can't do that, then we only shake hands each other. When the normal back, maybe, we can to kisses each other again. I hope it.

Hello everyone,

but if they are strange people we just shake hands.

Close friends I hug otherwise I shake hands.
