In Afghanistan and other Muslim countries, if you drop a piece of bread, you should pick it up as fast as possible and kiss it. There is no better way to express respect for food. Nobody is scared of germs here. So if you don’t want to have to do this, be careful and don’t drop anything.
When going on a trip, experienced tourists learn information about the etiquette rules and the sights of the country they are going to visit. Because if you don’t know the subtleties of the rules that the locals have, you might find yourself in an awkward situation. For example, you might insult a French man if you use the “Okay” gesture with him. And if you eat a hamburger with your hands in Chile, nobody will sit next to you.
