In addition to an overwhelming reader bias, one reader said something that really made my decision for me: ‘If I were you, I would consider which one fulfills the main reason of my taking this internship in the first place.’
Frankly, it’s not to research. It’s not hang out on the beach. It’s not to wear shorts in November. It’s not to get to spend time on USC’s AWESOME campusAnd no, it’s not even to try more froyo and veg cafes than you’d think exist.
It’s to make sure that my intended career path, neurosurgery, is right for me. So what better to suss out if a career in medicine is right than an actual four month internship in a hospital? ‘Nuff said.
Germany it is!
So I’m going to have to change my ‘About Me.’ Instead of my LA eats, this will be my European eats (because you can bet your bottom dollar that my travel-greedy self won’t stick to just Germany – as soon as those long weekends roll around, I’ll be all over – France, Italy, Spain, England…you name it!). I hope you’re still interested
I’ll also be covering cultural things (beyond, but probably including, Oktoberfest and the Weihnachtsmaerkte) and posting tons of pics of villages, towns, cities, etc.
And I’ll review my airport/airplane experience, because who doesn’t love a plane with good food & film to carry you over the Atlantic? It looks like I’ll be flying Lufthansa, KLM, or BMI. Because they’re just awesome.
I hope you’ll stick around and, if you have any suggestions of things you want me to try/review or of places you want me to visit and blog about (I just ask that they be somewhere in western Europe!) I’m very open to suggestion.
