... perfect way for me to end my trip here on the island. Yesterday actually started out somewhat more complicated than I would have liked, since my phone charger has been broken for about a week and my phone died the night before. I ended up not being able to set an alarm and wake up on time, so I was unfortunately unable to shadow in Gynecology that day.

My next stop after Santa Cruz was to hop back on the bus and head all the way across to the West of the island to Puerto Tazacorte – the sunniest place on the island.
