If being around really tall people is your kind of thing, go to Holland. The average man is 6'3". And that's without clogs on.

After about six months we left the TV studio and were taken out to some swanky restaurant, which was indeed a night club, which was indeed the preferred hang out for yer Milanese footballer.
