A Visit to the Dentist
About this blog
"My head is ready to explode" wails Miryam. She has a toothache. A chunk of tooth drops out of my mouth. It's time to go to Lima to get everything fixed. We haven't been for two years so it's about time. Margarita, Miryam's sister who lives in Tampa decides to accompany us. The search for an inexpensive fare ends up with a multi-stop flight with TACA. I have enough miles on American to get a free flight.
I contact my daughter Wendy who lives in Trujillo and she will come to Lima with my two grandchildren. Karen is sixteen years old and Angie is only one year and eight months. Wendy has had quite a rest between them it seems.
Our family dentist fixes my broken tooth and gives me a good deep cleaning. Miryam has a painful root canal, plus cleaning. Total cost is S/. 580. In US$ that's just $ 215.00 for everything. Wow, no wonder so many North Americans go south of the border to get their teeth fixed.
