The Argentine People
It is customary to address people by a title (Señor, Señora, Doctor, among others) when being introduced. A handshake and slight nod show respect. Women are most likely to kiss each other, but a man and woman may greet in this manner if well acquainted. When approaching someone such as a police officer or customs official for information, one should always greet the official before asking any questions.
