I recently had the privilege of tagging along with my son on a business trip to Amsterdam. I prepared a month in advance by reading a book on the Netherlands and adding the Dutch language to my Duolingo app. From my research, I learned many things about the country, but I was especially looking forward to seeing the tall people. The Dutch are recorded as being the tallest people in the world, with the average height of a male at 6 feet and the average height of a female at 5 feet 9 inches. Tall people have always fascinated me since I’m way at the other end of the spectrum at 5 feet 1 inch. I was not disappointed as I gaped at the extraordinary height of men, women and children, while dodging the streams of bicycle riders.
