|Eck and Sam Rit Politician Duang|
Eck and I set off to the Politician Duang's house first, and he found a satellite map of the four villages closest to each other; Sam Rit 1, 2, 12 and 13. The artist's residence and my family's compound are located in Sam Rit 2. The map was good to see the geographical proximity of the village, but we needed something more along the lines of a street view map.

Today was also the day I had my wisdom tooth extraction scheduled. It was at the local Phimai dentist, which now boasts two dental surgeons. They speak enough English to let you know what's going on, and are fully equipped and efficient in what they do. I had a small composite filling whilst waiting for the anaesthetic to kick in, then my impacted wisdom tooth, much more stubborn than anticipated, finally came out. It was all done in 35 minutes, then I was sent home with gauze, pain killers, antibiotics and a bill for AUS $54. For that kind of price and service I try to avoid going to the dentist anywhere else!
