This weekend we had the Session A people show up. They're fellows who decided to only take two weeks out of their summer for the internship, so they'll be leaving with all of us next weekend. About eight new students arrived, and they're all pretty cool! It was nice to spend one of our best weekends of the trip with them and see some new parts of the island.

On Saturday we all got in our big coach bus and traveled down to the south for the beach. The beach was called ...

Week 4

... at their place or in a local café from now on since there are so few of us. I'm really excited to see some new parts of the city and to hang out with some Spanish doctors! Marc invited me to shadow him next week, so I'm going to see if I can set something up with the hospital.

Seeing medicine in the European context has given me a new mindset with which to approach my passion ...

Sleeping in and Santa Cruz

... the cook took the huge churro out of the oil, he instantly put it down on the counter and, with scissors, cut the wheel into several individual churros. I wish we could go back to that café to indulge in the churros/hot chocolate breakfast.

After breakfast, Inés, Oriol, Ashley and I walked around town a little bit to get to the local Feria del libro (book fair), which was taking place in one of the parks nearby. I didn't get a chance to see the city last time ...
