As You Travel This Summer, Be Careful That Your Intransitive Gestures Don't Get Lost In Translation

Some gestures seem universal, however as you travel this summer you will realize that gestures can get lost in translation.

These are called intransitive gestures. They are socially sophisticated, and they are bound to both environmental and cultural contexts.
