TOO SHORT TO BE DANISH!


Too short to be Danish!

Ever since I have known Thomas, I have thought of him as a tall man - at 1m80 (6'), he is definitely above average in Scotland. But last Saturday I finally realized what he means when he insists he is simply of average height back home. Travelling on the newly-built Copenhagen subway, I went to hold on to the bar as the train pulled out of the station. We laughed when it turned out that at my very-below-Danish average 1m61 (maybe even 1m62 in my shoes), I couldn't even reach the bar the average person was meant to hold on to!
