My last two days in Tenerife

A travel blog entry by btfreder

... as clear and spotted with stars as it looked tonight; being above the clouds definitely helped us experience parts of the universe we normally never would have seen, and I'm glad we chose to do this for our final excursion. We got to hear traditional legends about the big/small bears (dippers) and Teide, learn about the life of a star, and see many planets and constellations--including Saturn, Mars, Sagitarus, Virgo, and many others. We even got to see the edge of the ...

Gynecology

A travel blog entry by btfreder

... born babies, so my day was pretty much made on the unit. That being said, I really don't think gynecology is for me; the fact of the matter is that this specialty requires a lot of work with labor and pregnancy, and I don't know if I want to put myself in the position of seeing a pregnancy or labor go wrong.

For people enjoying their holidays or early retirement it could ...

Week3---WEEKEND---week4

A travel blog entry by btfreder

... ocean floor wasn't even visible anymore--one of the most terrifying/liberating things I've ever done. Luckily the current wasn't that strong where we were, so we all made it out and back to the shore. I had a really good time with the other fellows, and I got an awesome work out and tan, so it was a successful beach day for sure! We had lunch at this little restaurant about an hour away from the beach, where we ate fried chicken and potatoes. It was one of the best meals we've eaten ...
