I was born with wonky feet, but compared to old Pak Lance, my foundations are positively rock solid. He has the distinctive footprint of a lontar climber; their feet grip like hands on the trunk and depending on their style, they either develop a C-shaped curve or a large Y between their big toe and second toe. He is always barefoot, even when building a rock wall, and the soles are so tough I'm sure he could walk over smashed glass without flinching. My foot is sporting an infected cut, hence the attractive gaffa tape. We could both do with a pedicure.
