Culture of Gabon
Customes and Courtesies
Even if you see someone multiple times in one day the Gabonese shake their hand and smile. You extend a closed fist, plam down, if your hand if dirty so the person can shake your wrist. People of the same gender often hold eachothers hands while talking (especially men). If someone invites you inside for a drink it is rude to say no, and the guests should always provide a drink and refill their glass quickly.
