My last two days in Tenerife

A travel blog entry by btfreder

... with my friends on the beach for the last time, have a few well deserved drinks, talk with Avi (from UIowa) about MCAT and premed course work, walk on the most jagged rocks I think I've ever been on, get sunburned on my legs (AGAIN), take some embarrassingly ridiculous selfies, interrupt a game of rugby between Spaniards, and get lost in the beauty of my favorite place in the north of Tenerife. I didn't want to leave the beach, but I really needed to get back home to put on ...

Such is the story of an economy reliant on tourism.

There was one small coastal town which felt good even though it held quite a few ...

... 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.
