The dwarf-like size of Pygmies

On my photos of pygmies they look quite normal of height - partly because I had to use wide-angle lenses in their small houses. Since my pictures in that sense are lying I am here showing a little selection of how they measure up with myself. However, these pictures are also lying since I am above average height among Danes who on average are much taller than most people in poor countries. Some of the Pygmy houses were so small that I got stuck inside and had to be dragged out.
