My last two days in Tenerife

... seen. We had an awesome view of Santa Cruz from the balconies to our side, and the chairs we sat in were so comfy they felt like sofas. Our coordinators treated us tonight to some fresh wine and Sangrķa, and we got constant refills on bread--which I always love. Dinner was different for everyone, because we actually got to order our own food tonight (a rare occasion here). I had a salad for my first course (it was really more like cole slaw, but they call it "ensalada cubana") ...

Gynecology

... born babies, so my day was pretty much made on the unit. That being said, I really don't think gynecology is for me; the fact of the matter is that this specialty requires a lot of work with labor and pregnancy, and I don't know if I want to put myself in the position of seeing a pregnancy or labor go wrong.

We started with a lot of bread, then ...

Week 4

A travel blog entry by btfreder

... a beautiful island to escape to, but it's also this mystical, chic place to explore and hang out in. I'll admit there have been moments during the last four weeks where all I wanted to do was go home and be with my girlfriend, family and dogs, but just yesterday, as I was sitting in the hospital cafeteria looking out at the view of the palm trees and ocean, it hit me that I might never get to experience Tenerife again--at least not the same way. Needless to say, ...
