Read the text and answer question.

How many kisses?

    You must remember this: you were going in for a double European - style greeting kiss with a friend who was expecting only a single cheek peck. It’s an awkward question that constantly creates trouble for traveleres: How many times should you pucker up? Here’s a handy guide:
    One: A single buss is acceptable in the U.S., but it’s mostly a big-city, phenomenon. Women will give a brief hug, while men shake hands. In the Middle East, one kiss on the lips is a normal greeting, but not between men and women.
    Two: Double up in Spain, Austria, Sweden, Hungary and, more recently, in Britain.
    Three or more: Triple kisses will work in Egypt, Russia, Switzerland and the Netherlands. Business in Belgium? Three kisses are a sign of respect for those at least 10 years older than you. Pack your lip balm in France; many people still insist on four kisses.
    Keep your lips to yourself: Germans rarely greet with a kiss. In Chile, opt for a handshake. Skip the kiss and bow or shake hands instead when visiting Japan, China and Korea.
