KKnow your Kenyan visitor

KKenya is located in the Great Lakes region of East Africa, between Tanzania and Somalia. Its capital is Nairobi. The most common greeting is the handshake. If you know someone well, the handshake lingers for longer than it would for a casual acquaintance. When greeting an elder, respect is shown by grasping your right wrist with your left hand while shaking hands. Kenyans are quiet, respectful people who revere their elders and have a strong cultural background.
