I love this city

Oh Cape Town, how I love it! It is just so beautiful and such a fun city! When I walk outside every morning to go to work at 7:15 I just look to my right and there is Table Mountain. When driving into the city you see the ocean on my right and Table Mountain is there again on my left. The sunrises and sunsets and gorgeous. I cant help but take a million pictures of them! Alright enough about that, work is great! The first week I was working in the ARV clinic and I was just shadowing a doctor and learning a lot about how their ARV and TB treatments work and why they choose to give certain drugs to their patients. I also have been helping out the doc by doing some blood work for him which is neat because I get to use all those high tech lab machines! This week I am in the eye clinic they have at the hospital and it is so so so interesting. The doctors there do a lot of cataract surgeries so I was able to go into the operating room with them and watch them do the procedure. They do it all by looking through a microscope and I was able to look through the side microscope and see them do the whole procedure. It was way cool. Made me want to perform eye surgeries! Today I was just in the clinic with the doctors and I was able to look through the microscopes and check out all the patients eye problems. What I love about that is that everyone's eyes are different and so I was able to see a lot of different diseases. The doctor was actually trusting me a lot and let me check through the microscope first to tell him what I thought was wrong with the patient then he would look and see if I was right or not. Im excited to work there the rest of the week!! For the fun stuff...I hiked Table Mountain!!! It was amazing! My legs still burn and are in pain from it but it was totally worth it :) Long Street is the street with all the bars and clubs and so my friends and I have been going there a few times and it is always a happening place. This weekend I am going on the Garden Route for a 4 day trip and I am so excited for it!!! Im goin to be petting elephants, zip lining, diving into caves, riding ostriches, and so much more. I cant wait!! Anywho I need to get off the computer because my time is going to run out! Hope everyone is doing well! Talk to you all later :)
