Hello! There is a similar question already on this forum, but my question is a bit more specific... I travel a lot in Latin America, and I know that in some places it is considered rude to open a gift in front of the person who gave it to you. I usually ask, "¿Lo abro ahora?" ...but the answer is often "como quieras." It's a little awkward for me because in my culture (the US) it's considered rude NOT to open a present immediately after someone gives it to you. Needless to say, when they leave it up to me to decide, I open it right away, though I sometimes get the impression that it was not the appropriate thing to do. Help! Where is it considered mala educación to open a gift right away and where is it acceptable? Does it have to do with geography or generation? Thanks for your help in this matter.
