My last two days in Tenerife

A travel blog entry by btfreder

... all had such an indescribable experience here in Tenerife; it really has been something so mystical, real, tragic, comical, scary, thrilling, new, bizarre and magical, but at the end of the day, we all had a beautiful time getting to know each other, our doctors, the hospitals, our coordinators, the Spaniards of the residencia, and the island. I may have gotten some awesome shadowing experience while here and taught some wonderful English, but what I'm really thankful to take from ...

Gynecology

A travel blog entry by btfreder

Our first day on the island was spent exploring ...

A travel blog entry by btfreder

... trip, and since it's been awhile since any of us have had semi-American food, we all dug in.

The next morning, we went on a hike in a northern part of the island called Teno--a mountainous region. Since we were at such a high elevation, the vegetation was very similar to that of deserts--all kinds of cactus and weird flowers/shrubs that only grow in places where water is in short supply. The views from the trail were totally amazing; we were right on the edge of the ...
