No Need For Heels Here
I made the strategic error of wearing my four inch high heels out for the evening. This was a problem on a number of levels:
The native population is not naturally gifted in the height department
Rain + High Heels = Not Good
Four hours in heels walking and dancing exceeds my natural tolerance for pain
Out of the lot, though, I would have to say the height issue was the biggest thing. I'm 5 foot 6 inches tall, which is about average-ish back in the states. Here, that's on the upper end. Add in heel height and it was a sure bet that if he was tall enough to look me in the eye, he wasn't from around these parts.
