    Москва? Кто хочет страшно там жить? Нижний Новгород намного лучше. 4-ий курс

    Translate: Moscow? Who wants to live in that hellhole? Nizhniy Novgorod is far superior. 4th year.

    Hehe…😉

    Tp kan bagus kalo tetibe jer dihadiahkan kehebatan otak surgeon😉

    Thanks for dropping by

  4. I’m just a medical student in clinical years… if anything that’s close, I’m close to be tortured during housemanship; be it in internal medicine, pediatrics, surgery, emergency medicine or OBGYN.
