It took a while to get the locals to confirm where an ear doctor was located and, of course, to negotiate a tuk tuk price, but we got there with relatively little ease in Indian terms. We were both pleasantly surprised that the doctor was very professional. We were half expecting a bloke at the side of the road with a pointy stick giving it a go (as we’d seen this previously) but no, a nice lady with ...
