A world built for shorter people

I live in a world built for shorter people.

While at 6' 2" I may be a bit above average height in the United States, here in El Salvador I am a freakishly tall giant.

Some examples:
  • This picture is of a door way in our newly constructed house. It is one of several in the house that have inflicted damage on my un-ducked head
  • I went to a store to buy a desk for my office and could not find one tall enough to fit my knees under
  • While driving a friend's pickup truck at night, I had to duck down to have a view of the road that was not made pitch black by the narrow strip of dark tinting across the top of the windshield
  • I have to stoop over to wash dishes in our kitchen sink or to prepare food on the counter top. (Are there any chiropractors in Gotera, El Salvador???)

You forgot that every mirror in almost every bathroom cuts you off at the chest if they have a bathroom and a mirror.
