  • Purple is a colour of mourning in Brazil.
  •  Bolivia has two official capiltal cities – LaPaz (permanent capital) and Sucre (summer capital)
  •  Surgeons in the United Kingdom are addressed as Mr. Mrs. or Miss. rather than Dr.
  • Argentina and Finland are both known for their popular versions of tango dancing.
  • Most Latinos strongly believe gifts depicting elephants should show the trunk held upward to capture good luck; it is considered bad luck for the trunk to face down as it implies the luck can run out. An elephant ornament should always face the door.
