It is absolutely amazing how fast time is flying right now. I honestly cannot believe I have been in Argentina for six weeks. I have one more month here and off I go, back to the U.S.A. this means I need to take advantage of my last month here to see, learn, and experience more.
To start off my week I got to cook a little something from home, some traditional Mexican food to thank my coordinator from BAC and her mother for everything they have done for me. I also got to start off my week in my internship in a great way . I was able to present the projects I have been working on to my site coordinator and one of my supervisors from my internship. Not only that, but I got to start off in a different floor this week where I learned about monitoring and controlling of chronic patients, protocols for hand washing, surgery, oncology, and all the primary prevention steps that are done to maintain and/or improve the health of the patients. Next week I will be able to continue to learn and work in this floor once again, I cannot wait.
This weekend it was all about studying, because Monday I will have the opportunity to take the American Heart Association Basic life support (BLS) exam with some of my co-workers. I was still able to take advantage of having some fun Friday, because I had an early shift. I was able to join one of my co-workers to Recoleta, Buenos Aires, an area that has an amazing history and architectural interest in the city of Buenos Aires. I was able to see an art gallery, sculptures, beautiful architectural buildings, and of course the famous Recoleta cemetery. The cemetery is known for having the graves of notable people, such as Maria Eva Duarte de Peron who served as the first lady of Argentina who fought for human rights, created her own charitable foundation, founded and ran the nation’s first female political party, and more. It was nice getting to see yet another part of Buenos Aires. Earlier today I took a break from studying to join my friend from Colombia to a Colombian restaurant that was very delicious.
