Here is something I have been meaning to do for a vary long time and I hope you all find it amusing, interesting and of some value as you stroll the streets of Mexico. While Mexican hand gestures can be strange and intimidating, they are also very utilitarian.I will start out with this very familiar one to folks from both sides of the border. It of course indicates that something is okay. But be careful how you use it and especially your presentation.
If you display the back of the hand while showing this sign, you are indicating that something is too expensive.If, when showing this sign but are making the hole too small, you are signaling someone is an a**hole. Usually done with the palm facing down.
I will create a blog post to store all of the hand gestures for future reference here. I have about 15 or 20 to share and I am sure that some of you have some to share too. Send them to me here.
