From the Jetlag Travel Guide "Molvania - A land untouched by modern Dentistry" comes the following gem:
"Though generally overlooked by tourists, central Molvania is very much the country's heart and soul. This is where the nation was born and where much of its folklore and deep-rooted traditions continue to flourish. In many villages here it's not uncommon for elderly women to grab you by the ears and spit three times in your face, said to offer protection from evil spirits. It won't, however, protect you from tuberculosis, and appropriate medical precautions should be taken."
