Relative sizes

I’m finally tall

Many of you asked before we left, “Do you think you’ll be tall in China?”

Short answer: We are tall in China.

More detail: Both Peter and I have students who are tall. I have many boys, especially, who are taller than me. But Peter definitely sticks out as a bigger person. I feel like I’m about the same size as most women, maybe a little taller. Until I notice that a large portion of the women here wear three-inch heels or platform sneakers. I’m finally tall!
