Letter 1.31

Went to the dentist last week. He is in Galle, the nearest town, 9 miles south (an hour's travelling time), and he found that the filling that had been put in my lower right wisdom tooth (at Ein Gedi) had come out and the tooth was decayed beyond saving. It was extracted efficiently - far better than the butcher job that was done on the other wisdom tooth at Beit Oren - and no other work at all was needed. So in the last four years, except for the loss of the two right wisdom teeth (a loss of negligible value), I've had, I think, only one filling - a quite satisfactory record…
