Week3---WEEKEND---week4

A travel blog entry by btfreder

... trip, and since it's been awhile since any of us have had semi-American food, we all dug in.

The next morning, we went on a hike in a northern part of the island called Teno--a mountainous region. Since we were at such a high elevation, the vegetation was very similar to that of deserts--all kinds of cactus and weird flowers/shrubs that only grow in places where water is in short supply. The views from the trail were totally amazing; we were right on the edge of the ...

... to experience my time here more.

This week I'm in internal medicine, which I was skeptical about before this trip. I've shadowed an internist before (although only once for a few hours), and though I recognized the importance of the specialty, I never saw myself generalizing the way internists must.

... second trip to the Capitol. While we were supposed to go to a fresh produce market, it ended up being closed, so we improvised and decided to have breakfast at a nearby café where they sold churros and hot chocolate. Never in my life have I ever had such amazing fried food.
