Baring your soles
What’s wrong with your poor feet? In many non-western countries it is customary to sit down cross-legged for a meal or a chinwag. If you do, make sure you’re not pointing your soles in anyone’s general direction. It’s a serious affront in Muslim countries.
Curiously enough, baring your soles can also offend in Russia. In Buddhist countries, such as Thailand, sitting with your feet pointed in the direction of a Buddha statue is a no-no.
