nose queen

What I've learned today!
"... nose kissing has been identified as one of the most common and unique gestures in Qatar. It is only practised between men when greeting each other. You meet and gently knock the nose one, two or three times. ..."
And also in Qatar, the nose symbolizes pride, self esteem and self-respect. So while in Europe people make stupid jokes about what once has been called a "Gesichtserker" (face-gazebo) - people in the east pay the right attention to the thing that is most prominent in our face.
