Time in Tampa

Despite the days being busy at the clinic and hospitals, I still had time to visit enjoy the city of Tampa. For those visiting, I highly recommend the Tampa Riverwalk and Ybor City. Also, you definitely can’t leave before going to Sparkman Warf. At Sparkan Warf you can enjoy a beautiful sunset, live music, and a good beer.

For those who still don’t know if they should visit the U.S. for a rotation , I urge you not to waste any more time. Just go for it! You won’t regret!
I’m already planning on completing a second rotation this coming December! I can’t thank AMOpportunities enough for this experience!
