Journal 3

7:30 - reach turn-off just past Galle; I set out on foot again. “Dentist tells me it is 7 miles; am offered ride/bus fare several times, by various curious people. About 8:00 AM am offered a cup of tea-accepted; am asked if I have had hil dana—morning meal—and say no. It is promptly brought; refused. I do not want it and was not asked if I wanted it. I drink tea, answer questions, start walking again. Villages: no chance to go 'one-shouldered', which is far more comfortable.
