A Difference of gesture

Physical gesture may have

different meaning

in different cultures, and

misunderstanding these signal can

sometimes be embarrassing.

I once had an experience
which I have never forgotten.

Some years ago,

I took some foreign students to Kyoto.

I counted them with the index finger,
which is common in Japan.

But one of them became quiet and
looked puzzled.

When I asked him what was the matter,

he replied.

"In my country,

we count people with our eyes.

We only use our finger to count pigs."

 Also, he uses gesture while speech. ↓
