Week 63: Getting warmer

I pulled out a trench coat for the evenings.

The cherry blossom season is already beginning. Today I booked a restaurant for a hanami night with my dad. It is our favourite event in Japan to have some drinks at an old restaurant within Ueno Park where thousands of cherry blossom trees are at their peak in late March.

This week, I made observations of seven consultations and took four audio recordings. During the consultations, the doctor had an urgent call about a patient. We arrived at the patient’s place and the doctor treated the patient’s torn skin and administered some medication. I realised how helpless I am and wished I could help with the treatment or do something (but I couldn’t).

Goals for Week 64
