... down to Santa Cruz for dinner, and we all looked super snazzy for our farewell party. We all met outside this incredibly fancy restaurant (the Casino--not like Las Vegas casinos, but more like social clubs), and took an obnoxious amount of group photos, selfies and final shots with friends. When we finally ended up going inside this restaurant--which was the most upscale place I've ever been in (and probably ever will be in)--we were escorted to one of the most fancy dining halls ...

The views from the trail were totally amazing; we were right on the edge of the ...

Today we had a really funny patient in internal medicine who I have to talk about here. Her name was Irene, and she didn't speak a lick of Spanish because she's Scottish (though she has lived in Tenerife for upwards of 20 years). She was in the hospital because she had some kind of serious dementia and diabetes. Her dementia caused her to speak very slowly and to occasionally say things that didn't make sense or that were incomprehensible. Her face ...
