... Lettuce, Cucumber, Green Peppers and Honey Mustard. The sandwich might as well have been shipped from the US, but I didn't care! After that I went to a local store to pick up a few souvenirs (including my own Spanish iPhone case!), and then after picking up a few more friends, we headed down to the beach! As cheesy as it may sound, today actually was in fact the most perfect day to go to the beach; it was sunny, warm, and there was no wind to carry the sand into our eyes. I got ...
... pain. Laura was the resident we followed today, and she was very nice. She was super eager to practice her English with us, and since Mary Hunter doesn't speak much Spanish, I conceded to speaking mostly English in today's shadowing experience.

It's so crazy to think that two weeks from now, I won't even be here anymore! I'm dreading leaving the island, but I also can't wait to see my girlfriend and family again. Here's to an awesome weekend!
... br> Paco, the doctor I am shadowing, has taken me all over the hospital, showing me all the different patients he sees on a regular basis. I know exactly what you're thinking: "An internist in the hospital? How is that possible?"
