I visited the State Capitol to get some stuff done and I met up with two dudes working in different political offices. Both of these guys are Chicanos - well, one is a Chicano and the other guy is a Mexican-American. When I was ready they both got up and put out their hand for a good ole' fashion hand shake - so I thought. No, each time, I was surprised that these tie-wearing cronies (they're my friends) were giving me a full fledged raza handshake. You know, the one with the multiple steps. It through me for a loop. I mean, I'm used to the handshake - I always do it back home or with other friends, but in this environment I was surprised. It obviously made an impression on me, since I'm blogging about it. I enjoyed it - it was pretty cool. Of course there were slight variations with the handshake - I almost got lost during the second one, but all in all it was some sort of Raza handshake.
