Subject: RE: Help: Wearing hats or caps ; Manners?
the shoe thing in private homes - y'know it's all what people are used to; in some homes it would be extremely rude to REMOVE your shoes, while in others it would be the height of rudeness NOT to remove your shoes.

rule of thumb - watch your hosts...and even if they currently have shoes on - presence or lack of a big pile of different shoes next to the doorway is a good clue as to normal custom.
