  32. 32. Peruvian Facts: History, Language and Culture<br />In Peru, it is polite to keep your hands (not the elbows) above the table. <br />Good manners include eating all the food that is provided.<br />Meals are considered leisure conversations, so it is important to talk during a meal.<br />Conversations with Peruvians take place at a closer distance than those with Westerners. Stepping back is disrespectful.<br />The traditional welcome in a Peruvian home is “Estas en tu Casa,” which translates to “You are in your house.”  Refreshments are usually offered, though it is not impolite to decline them. <br />
