In America, we greet and wave. In Asian countries, we bow to show respect when greeting elders, important people, parents, etc.
They wave and say Hi!
They have many greetings. Here they are in order of popularity: "Salamu Alaykum" = Peace be upon you "Alaykum Al-Salam" = And peace be upon you "Amel Eih?" = How are you do…ing? "Hamdo lillah" = Thanks be to God. "Eih El-Ak'bar?" = What's up/ What are the news? "Hamdo lillah" = Thanks be to God. or "Kollo tamam" = All's fine. "Kollo tamam" could also be used as a question, as in "All's fine?".
Cubans greet each other with a light embrace and kiss on the cheek.

In Senegal, even though French is the official language, the custom is to greet a person first in Arabic: "Salam aleykoum" (Peace be with you), then is Wolof, "Na nga def?" (H…ow are you?), "Naka sa we ker?" (How is the family?"
It is not a complicated or even moderately formal occasion; most simply say "Hello," or some other casual greeting. And the men usually shake hands with other men and with the… women if they wish to.
Arabs (or more specifically muslims) greet each other by saying assalamu alaikum, which means "Peace be with you". The response to that is Wa alaikum assalaam, meaning "And …upon you be peace"
They wink and nod
I know that the answer is probably supposed to be "with a salute", but honestly, most greet each other the same way any two people would. If is a much higher rank than the oth…er, then they may refer to each other by title (i.e. private, colonel).
im a FULL BLOOD SAMOAN.. and i know nothing bout the culture... poor me
Angels greet each other by touching their wing tips together.
Most greetings with strangers are informal, so a nod and a smile, with the greeting , "Sain bain uu?" (Are you well?') usually suffices. The expected response is "sain" (well)…, even if you are not feeling your best that day. It is oddly redundant to say, "Sain bain uu?" to the same person more than once in the same day.
