Honking, Smiling & Greeting

The taxi drivers use sonar…..they know when a car approaches because they hear a honk. The light turns green, they honk. When you’re getting in and/or out of the taxi, the car behind honks. They need to relax and only honk when they see the sign “Honk if you love your kids!”

A smile is the one thing you can share generously and never run out of. So SMILE. It also makes others smile. It’s contagious yet not a disease! It’s free! You can be the reason someone’s day is turned around. So turn your frown upside down and SMILE!*

Greeting people in the hotel (where we’re still living), on the streets, in the taxis, at the school, stores and souqs is polite and appropriate. A simple “hello,” “marhaba,” or “salaam alekuum” works every time.

OK, put it all together: greet people with a smile, not a honk and you’ll have great, fun days everyday. Try it on!
