I just returned from Namibia. I was in row 29 both ways and on the aisle. On the plus side: lots of leg room. When you recline you can really stretch out. Down sides: your tray table folds out of the armrest and is maybe 5" wide. The video monitor also folds up from under the armrest. Both are a real PITA, especially the tray table. I have a protruding abdominal area (280#) and it is tight against me and the food service trays need to be held on the table while eating. In 2013 I went to Zimbabwe and was in row 30. The monitor is in the headrest of the person in front of you and the tray table is standard airline. Legroom was still good. Due to your height, 29 might be the choice but it has its down side.
