... 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. Here's to an awesome weekend!
... the same as in the US. They are still jacks of all trades, and they often work with outpatients. What surprised me was the unit in the hospital, because I have never heard of inpatient internal medicine before--in fact, I don't know if it exists in the United States, at least not as internal medicine. I don't know how to characterize or differentiate these patients from others in the hospital, but essentially the patients we've been seeing all have ...
... stories, and I am so excited to have the privilege of getting to know their lives here on the island.
Today was interesting and unique because we got to go to a primary care clinic, el Centro de Salud Taco (yes, this healthcare center was in fact named Taco, after the area in which it is located). Before I arrived in Tenerife, I never considered primary care a feasible professional possibility for me; to a certain extent, I didn't have much respect for ...
... pain. Not only was my resident the most friendly and bubbly medical doctor I've ever met, but the work she got to do interested me. I'm still not entirely certain how intensive medicine differentiates from other specialties (like internal medicine, cardiology, or family medicine, for example), but I got to see a wide range of patients with a variety of health issues today. Lina even let me listen to the heartbeat and breathing of some of the patients, which was exciting ...
... of walls which were completely covered in different tags and images sprayed by people in Santa Cruz. I had experienced art like this a year before when I was in Grenoble, France, but I was still amazed by the detail, color, dimensionality and realistic features these people were able to achieve with just spray paint. Needless to say, I spent at least five minutes trying to take pictures of as many of these images as possible.
The book fair was nice because ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Puerto Palace Hotel Puerto de la Cruz
Have just returned from a very enjoyable holiday in the Puerto Palace Hotel. The only disappointment was the weather!!
Wonderful views of Mount Teide.
I have stayed at the Puerto Palace hotel on three occaisions. The rooms are clean and well maintained. The staff polite and helpful and the food is good. I enjoyed the holidays I have spent here and would reccomend this hotel to anyone.
Dolphins And Whales - Los Gigantes
Excellent boat travel, seeing dolphins a few meters from you, the whales, a dive in Los Gigantes, great, great, great. Puerto de La Cruz is a very nice city to walk around, and the Hotel Puerto Palace is fantastic. Really good. Highly recommended.
Just returned from our 2nd holiday at the Puerto Palace. As before the staff on reception were not particularly helpful or friendly, however the cleaning staff are vey personable. The rooms are fairly large and very clean, with good sized balconies and catches the sun all day. The pool area is also spotless with plently of sunbeds. The food is of a high quality but can be repetitive if you stay for two weeks. The hotel is a fifteen minute walk from the resort centre, but there are buses provided to the hotel's sister hotels in the resort centre. For the price I would highly recommend the Puerto Palace and I will be returning again shortly.
visited the puerto palace feb/march2004 very nice hotel although a little out of town if you like night life. good food the best bacon i have had abroad pool area exellent rooms very nice roomy balconies curtsey bus runs during the day all in all a very enjoyable holiday
We have had our 2nd December holiday at the Peurto Palace hotel, and I am trying to book again for this December. Hotel is clean inside & out, cannot fault the food, if people want English food they should stay at home. The comments sound as if they apertain to a completely different hotel.
What a wonderful world!
I visited this resort in the summer of 2001.It was better than I could ever imagine.The weather was perfect.The food was great and the staff too. It is a little bit far from the center of the town but the hotel offers a free service of buses. I´m expecting to return again.
This was our sixth visit to Hotel Puerto Palace in the north of Tenerife. It must be a message of satisfaction for all would-be visitors to the Resort. The Hotel is some 800m. from the Resort centre, giving a more relaxed and quiet environment by night. There is a steep hill to overcome but a regular free bus service is available from outside the Hotel entrance or alternatively taxis for just under 3 euros per trip. The food is excellent and plentiful with a wide and varied menu which includes Canarian dishes. giving a true pan-European selection of meals. All meals are self-service, buffet style, with the option of a separate Restaurant - waiter service - for evening meals (shirt and tie more appropriate). Hotel rooms are spacious, scrupulously clean, with a furnished, roomy balcony. The room-cleaning staff are all cheerful, friendly and obliging. The gardens have one cold and one large heated pool, with two jacuzzis. The 'privacy' areas of the garden design is excellent, with a separate area for snacks and drinks. Other activities are available. All staff were extremely courteous and helpful with the Hotel Director and his management team holding a weekly cocktail reception (Tuesdays) to meet guests. I am sure this contributes to the overall excellence of the Hotel. Mr. David Herrera and Staff - thank you for another excellent holiday! The Thompson representative was 'Katie'- a most helpful and pleasant person who arranged our excursions following detailed information and guidance.
