My last two days in Tenerife

A travel blog entry by btfreder on Jun 21, 2014

... Lettuce, Cucumber, Green Peppers and Honey Mustard. The sandwich might as well have been shipped from the US, but I didn't care! After that I went to a local store to pick up a few souvenirs (including my own Spanish iPhone case!), and then after picking up a few more friends, we headed down to the beach! As cheesy as it may sound, today actually was in fact the most perfect day to go to the beach; it was sunny, warm, and there was no wind to carry the sand into our eyes. I got ...

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.

I guess I knew about this in the US, but I never realized how interesting and cool it actually is when ...

Week3---WEEKEND---week4

... since it was in the south we had absolutely perfect weather. It was extremely sunny and warm, but not uncomfortably hot or humid--perfect weather for the beach. The south is the most popular tourist area on the island, so everyone on the beach spoke an awkward mix of Spanish, English, French and German. The beach itself though was among the top five most beautiful beaches I've ever been to. The sand was a mix of black and white, so it had this cool brown/silver color I've never ...

Week 4

... br>
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 ...
