Taking a break now from toiling at my unbelievable pile of work as the school year winds down here in the Philippines, I'm reminiscing once more about my student days in Finland.
The photo above is of the main building of the Tampereen Yliopisto- University of Tampere- our home for three of the five weeks we were in Finland to participate in the Global Health Course. It was one of the best five weeks of my life, as it gave me the chance to learn current trends in medicine and public health; interact with kindred spirits from Finland, Tanzania, and Chile, and; helped me love more the work that I do and the people and country I do it for.
The interesting blend of vistas and architecture as above are likewise some of the bonuses that made everything really worthwhile.
