I came to witness the nuptials of my dear friends Bao Xishun (the world’s reigning tallest man) and Xia Shujian (the world’s reigning tallest man’s wife). They actually married in a civil ceremony back in March, but held the gung-ho traditional ceremony this week in front of 2,000+ people.
Wow! What a sight. The bride was a young, gorgeous lady in red and the groom looked old and tall. And oh… what a night! When the toasts were made, everyone got a good laugh from the joke about “how Big Bao is tall pretty big and long everywhere.” She certainly had a treat waiting for her that night, methinks!
Anyhoo, off to pack up my bags and go home. I can’t stay in Mongolia forever!
hugs and kisses,
