My last two days in Tenerife

A travel blog entry by btfreder on Jun 21, 2014

... and olive oil, battered fish for my second course and some rice pudding for dessert. The drinks and food were so good I really didn't want to stop eating, and I got to really connect with my friends at my table which was nice because many of them were from Session A and hadn't spoken to me much. Dinners have been sketchy here, very hit or miss to say the least, but I can honestly say that our coordinators did a good job of making it up to us tonight. Props to them for making it ...

Gynecology

... before. We arrived at the unit at about 8:15 as we always do, and we spent about 45 minutes in the morning meeting where all the doctors gather together to discuss various patients and particularly challenging cases. To be honest, I'm sure what they were saying was very interesting, but I was so tired from waking up so early that I could not understand a single word of what any of those doctors was saying, and I quickly found my head bobbing as I struggled ...

End of week 4

A travel blog entry by btfreder on Jun 14, 2014

... catch some sun again before starting our final week here in Tenerife. As much as I want to go home to see my girlfriend, family and dogs, I can't help but loathe the idea of leaving this place.

... one area we were told the huge Russian development had only sold 10% of the units and let a further10% having 80% just standing idle. Several other sites had been built to varying levels and clearly stopped when the cash ran out leaving broken hearts and loosing thousands of euros for the unlucky investors. Such is the story of an economy reliant on tourism.

There was one small coastal town which felt good even though it held quite a few ...

Week3---WEEKEND---week4

A travel blog entry by btfreder on Jun 11, 2014

... 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!
