Being friendly and not complaining about 'the small stuff' has benefits, as does helping out a friend or neighbor when appropriate; and I don't mean by handing out cash, although you may spend a little for a few needed items.
One does well to avoid saying, "We did it this other way up north." or similar cultural errors.
Smiles, compliments and hugs are part of the culture here and they notice that we seem 'cold' in that area. Oh yes, don't forget to say a greeting when entering a store, even if you don't see anyone.
There are lots of 'rewards' to living here & we're still discovering more and more of them.
