This will probably be an ongoing post as I discover the things Koreans do right. Or at least right in my perception, others may disagree.
For now I have discovered the following:
- Handrails are at a perfect height for a 5'4" frame. They are easy to grab and perfectly situated in case a fall may occur. Luckily I have had no fall but if I do I will be happy to know the Koreans have thought of this little but important feature of staircases.
- Again, sinks in restrooms are at a great height for small folks.
- At my former residence in Alabama we had a toilet that stood so tall off the ground that my feet would dangle as I sat upon the throne. This is not the case in Korea. My feet sit comfortably, flat and firmly upon the ground as I do my business.
But even better are the toilets that you don't even have to sit upon! This may not go over so well in a household residence but it is a marvelous idea for a public restroom. Yes, yes, yes Korea!
- If the 5'4" frame is not doing you any good, then you can purchase shoes with two-inch souls to make you even taller... for $10!
