Cultural Hand Signals

I am guessing you have heard the story of the Texas football team which went Italy and the Texas fans started flashing the team’s bull horns. The Italian response was quite a surprise and very negative,  for apparently this sign is a huge insult in Italy.

As we must be aware of not only on culture but those around us.

When my husband and I ride our bicycles around the neighborhood we use hand signals to indicate turns.  I’m thinking we may be the only people in this area who still use hand signals while bicycles. For when drivers pass by us, they will enevitably wave to us. Don’t get me wrong. We wave while riding all the time. But a right hand turn is not a wave. Still, it’s nice to live in a friendly neighborhood.
