My last two days in Tenerife

A travel blog entry by btfreder on Jun 21, 2014

... 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 ...

... awake. It seemed that some of the other residents were having similar problems.

After the session was over, we ran down to the other hospital with three residents to see a very quick presentation all residents were required to attend.

... fourth weekend! I got burned pretty badly on every part of my body, and I'm just now beginning to peel all that skin away, but it was so worth it. We only have one more weekend here before we all go our separate ways, so I'm really thankful that I got to have a great one with my friends. 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.
