... favorite students) decided to come, and since it was just us four, we ran downstairs to the café for some coffee and pop. I got to have some great conversations with them--about Tenerife wine, Spanish learning, English accents and medical school--and get to wrap up my hospital work.

The hike was scheduled to last about 2.5-3 hours, but apparently we were running later than normal, so the bus had to come pick us up about halfway through.
