Ladies and hoes
Very few men understand the subject. I definitely don't. To give an example: my mother always complained that she could never buy any shoes as she had such small feet (seize 35). So whenever she saw a nice pair of shoes that did fit her she bought them. So when she opened the cupboard in which she kept her shoes there were at least a hundred pair and then of course she complained that she did not know which pair to choose.
In China most young women and mothers want to look beautiful and are small, so they like to wear high heels. Understandable, but sometimes those high heels are not suited for the occasion, at least that is what sensible men like us think. For instance while visiting a tourist attraction on with wobbly steps and bumpy paths. We admit that it creates excellent opportunities for orthopaedic surgeons and that is probably why these people earn vast sums of money.
Although Dick was against it, I took the liberty of taking a few snapshots of ladies wearing these high heels when we were visiting villages where the roads were paved with cobble stones, or when we were climbing a mountain. Of course we were told by our guide that only proper footwear would do, unfortunately the ladies did not have a guide. And taking advise from husbands, like anywhere else in the world, is too simple for words. Here are the photographs and only the last lady gave up wearing her high heels in the Daixan mountains and got to her senses before the orthopaedic
surgeon had to be called.
