How Dentists Rip Us Off
Happy New Year! Come on in 2014! I don’t know about you, but for me, 2013 posed many challenges. Fortunately, I was able to fly away a few times. Amsterdam in June. It was my first time, so I planned just a taste,a few nights in garden view room in a Dutch house on the Canal. From there I walked to Coffee shops and the Red Light District. I ferried over to the Film Museum, before taking a Canal cruise,which I loved. Most of the museums are bunched together, so I first walked around the neighborhood, admiring the architecture, which didn’t leave me enough time to see the art, inside. The train from the airport to the center of town couldn’t have been more convenient. There are lots of ways to get around the city although the locals seen to prefer bicycles. Everyone I encountered was lovely and friendly. I could easily live in Amsterdam, and look forward to a return visit to see the museums
The next few weeks were spent exploring the Welsh Coast. I booked a few days in Penzance, and took day trips to St. Ives and Land’s End. Once known as a wellness resort, Tenby, in England, was perfect for a pictorial essay, and Bath, was close enough for an afternoon soak in their ancient mineral baths.
I did make it to Thailand in the fall, namely, Bangkok, Chang Mai, and Hua Hin. I extended my trip for another week in Bangkok. During that time, I discovered that eye exams are free in Thailand, so I updated lenses for two of my old frames at a cost of $30. each for single vision. The best exam and lenses I’ve ever had.
I made an appointment for my yearly physical at Yanhee, ($120.) as well as a cleaning and replacing a few fillings with Dr. Kamala, my favorite dentist in the whole world. I wish I could bottle her like a genie…
