Today seemed like a good day to go and visit Galle which is not dar from here. About half an hour by bus. The weather was overcast and not too hot.
I visited the old Dutch fort which is a very impressive construction and kind of studier the layout of the defences. It must have been quite a stronghold in its days and was meant to defend the interests of the Dutch East India Company which had VOC as an acronym.
After working around for a few hours, I started to get very itchy from that sun allergy that I developed and decided that this would be the right place to look for a doctor since Galle is a main town.Most people knowledge of english is very limited and in most cases almost non existent but I generally manage to get by. I saw a hospital, went in and was able to see a doctor almost immediately.
She prescribed an intravenous shot of hydro cortisone as well as an intramuscular one as well and prescribed a series of pills and cream as the condition is acute.
I made my way back to Hikkaduwa and went to sleep for 4 hours since I had not slept well the night before and was completely exhausted. I slept like a log till 8.00PM went for dinner and then, right back to bed for a very good night sleep.
