Mensagem:  Stephanie, years ago a Chilean made a similar observation.  I had always found Chileans very polite, but she said we thanked people much more often than they.   On the other hand, it was very unusual for a Chilean to leave a group -- even after a brief encounter with a large group -- without shaking hands and saying goodbye.  That is something Americans would not do.  Different cultures do different things.
