My last two days in Tenerife

A travel blog entry by btfreder on Jun 21, 2014

... group was on Teide, so we really needed to bring warm things in order to survive in the cold mountains. We got dinner in this quaint restaurant (which was in no way big enough for all of us, but I appreciated it), and then we took the windy, terrifying uphill trip to an area near the observatory we had visited earlier in the trip. We got to take some AMAZING photos of La Orotava from the top, and the "sea of clouds" looked stunning in the night sky. In addition, the night sky has ...

Gynecology

A travel blog entry by btfreder on Jun 16, 2014

... Laguna, the doctors were very concerned about the baby's development, but they induced her labor (for reasons I don't really know the details of). She ended up having the baby at 26 weeks--last Friday--and now she's recovering on the unit. Her blood pressure is very high, and she is experiencing excessive uterine bleeding, but Laura explained to her that this is very normal and that her recovery is promising and encouraging.

Week3---WEEKEND---week4

A travel blog entry by btfreder on Jun 11, 2014

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 ...
