While looking through pictures for the Mongolia piece, I found a few shots of me in Japan and, damn, I sure do look even more like a giant than usual.
*Okay, this last picture is a bit misleading. This is a door to a restaurant (the curtain by my elbow is the top of the entrance) and it is meant to be overly small.
Amazingly enough, I fit through it by literally crawling in. Whilst not all doors are this small they are usually about 6’2″ high (i.e. the size of the wood-panel portion of that wall). This means, since I’m 6’4″, I hit my head about halfway between the crown and the forehead (roughly the location of the logo of my hat)
I can feel a slight indentation there and I can’t remember if I had that notch before living in the land of the rising sun.
I really dislike hitting my head.
