Where were you when? Being a giant in Riga

Well, he is well known for his lofty high tones and for being pretty tall, but this photo is fantastic evidence of just how tall Alan H is. . . He is ENORMOUS, just look how he dwarves those Japanese tourist walking under his legs as if he is a regular bridge or something.

Now you may be asking yourself, "where is he" and "what is he doing there", and you would be right ask this and we would be right to tell you.  In fact he is in Riga the capital of the beautiful Baltic state of Latvia during the recent sonic voyage of discovery that was the Singing Week organized with the mythical Stephen Taberner, friend of the Magnificents.

Anyway, the scores are in.
1. The Location - 3.5 (No visible signage despite some writing on the building behind).

2. The Pose - 4.0 (A reasonable amount of pointless grandeur, especially considering he has several people walking below him).

3. The X-Factor - 4.0 - (Given his giantness and being used as a portico whilst wearing a TMAK47 T-Shirt).

Making that a total of 11.5 - by far the highest scoring entry from anyone in a Baltic state being used as a passageway by oriental tourists.
