Turpan to Turpan! 36 miles.
Set off as normal this morning, half an hour down the road the wind started to pick up, only today it was blowing against me! I should have stopped and turned back then, as further down the road all you could see was dust, but like an idiot I carried on, until it got so bad that I couldn’t ride against the wind or see anything for the dust!
Got back to the hotel and re-checked in much to the surprise of the staff!
Had toothache for the past few days so thought it was maybe a good time to try and sort it out. Managed to find a Dentist, thanks to the hotel staff, the tooth was loose so I knew and so did the dentist know which tooth it was so he said I’ll just pull it out, if it’s loose which it was there wasn’t a lot else to do! He gave me a slip of paper which I had to take down to the cashier who in turn after taking payment (£21) gave me a slip to go and get the anaesthetic and antibiotics from the pharmacy, once I had these it was back up to the Dentist for the extraction! He was getting ready for a battle to get it out, with his knee on my chest, when it just came straight out! It was one of my implants not a real tooth and I think that where it had come loose a piece of food had got underneath and that’s what was causing the pain.
