My last two days in Tenerife

A travel blog entry by btfreder

... through the giant telescope our guide had brought with us. I love star gazing in general, but getting to spend time with my friends for what would be one of the last times was so nice, and I am grateful to have experienced that with them. We didn't end up getting home until 1:00 am, but I don't regret that at all, and if I could do it over again I would!

This morning I decided to also not go back to the hospital. Having gotten back super late the night before, I figured ...

Although the views from the mountain were breathtaking and the village was sick, I think the highlight of the day was lunch. The coordinators anticipated more of us coming on the hike (there are about 40 in our group now, and only about 14 people showed up), so they ordered more food than necessary. We started with a lot of bread, then ...
