In my work, I have the privilege of occasionally traveling to other countries.
I find it very special how in Latin America, people greet each other when they’re eating out – total strangers, even, wishing each other well. Buen provecho: Enjoy your meal. Sometimes just, Provecho.
In fact, they acknowledge each other whenever they are in another person’s presence just in passing, whether in a restaurant, elevator, hallway: good day, good evening, enjoy your meal, whatever. It’s a culture of acknowledgment and recognition.
In a world that’s drowning in devices and distractions, this tradition is a breath of fresh air.

I still have a comment for your previous post and it applies here, too.
