If you live permanently in France, you know that you always give the handyman the hand of the local residents, the secretary at the town hall and the handyman. Also when leaving. If the relationship is very friendly then there will be kissing, usually twice. Women almost always kiss women, men sometimes want to keep their distance at a meeting cushion (the bise, kisses out of affection is embraser, then a kiss is called a baiser, but the verb baiser does not mean kissing, please note, but happily, making a seesaw ).
