Mannancherry, Kerala, India – We’re Off To See The Dentist!

Michael and I were off to the dentist this day! We hopped on our scooter and drove to a little village called Mannancherry. There we would visit the dental clinic called Smile Dental Lounge!

Pictures on our journey to this village:

Tuk-tuks waiting for passengers.


At a train stop, waiting for the train to pass.


The SUPER fast trains zooms by!


Afterwards, everyone carries on to their destination.


I asked Michael to stop as we passed this church so I could take a picture of the women in their colorful saris!


We arrived at our destination!


I braved the dentist chair first!  Normally, I don’t mind the dentist, but this time I became fearful when the sound of the cleaning instrument sounded, and felt like a drill!!!  The pain was so bad, I almost stopped the session.  But, she added numbing gel – that didn’t really help….

Michael was next, and after his appointment he corrected my assumption that a drill was used to clean my teeth – it was water pressure and a dentist without a lot of finesse!!!



While Michael was having his teeth cleaned, I went to the toilet…


Then walked around to check out the area!

When I asked to take a pictures of the young girls, the youngest of the two was a bit fearful of me, but my smile softened her a bit! There were still posters hanging from the recent election.

I returned to the dental clinic just as Michael was finished. Next stop lunch! Lunch was okay – I did not enjoy the red tomato dish as it was mostly onions, so I helped Michael with his fried rice! As always, I enjoy paratha bread! The yellow potatoes were yummy! We finished with Indian tea.  I believe the cook is preparing paratha bread?


Incredible India!!

    Glad you both survived your dentist appointment. Your pictures really do capture life in the area you are in. The paratha bread seems to be a favourite, maybe you can get the recipe before you leave. 🤔Looks very good. mama 😍

    1. I’m hopefully going to spend some time learning to cook Indian food from our hostess, Mini! Paratha bread is on the list!!! 🙂
