“Big Foot”Posted: September 16, 2013
I have big feet, even by US standards. I’ve grown accustomed to being bigger than most people. In the States it’s pretty rare for me to be in the same room as someone who’s as tall as I am. It’s even more rare in China. I never realized just how big I must seem to our Chinese friends, acquaintances, and fellow pedestrians.
This point was recently driven home to me. Our teacher came for a visit and when she changed from her street shoes into slippers, my shoe ended up near hers. I was shocked at the difference. I quickly took a picture so I could show you too.
