In Saudi Arabia you must say Sahtain before food is served. You cannot use your left hand to eat, pass food, and you must keep your left hand at your side. You must wash your hands before you eat.
The etiquette rules of Saudi Arabia are important to know before you go there because then you are respecting their culture. We thought it was surprising that they cannot use their left hand for anything. It is different from the USA because in the USA we can use our left hands and we do not have to say something before we eat.
