Culture of the Republic of Guinea-Bissau

Costumes and Courtesies

Greetings in the Republic of Guinea-Bissau are an important way to show respect. It is rude to start speaking to a person without first greeting them. Visitors are treated very well because t is considered a nice and thoughtful act. Here most families that can afford it eat three meals a day. In America we think as dinner pretty much being the main meal but for Guinea-Bissauians lunch is the main meal. Dinner is just a light version of lunch.
