My photography exhibition at Colegio de Fotografía de Occidente

During our stay in Mexico I studied a six month photography course at a very warm and welcoming little private school called Colegio de Fotografia de Occidente. To get the diploma the final thing you had to do was having an exhibition with an optional theme. My theme was "Colores de Mexico" (colors of Mexico) since I love everything that the colorful mexican culture has to offer. 

This will be the final post on this blog for this time. Now a new phase and life back in Sweden starts.

Visit from the parents-in-law

We are back home in Sweden since April now, but I feel that this blog is not complete yet since I didn't manage to post anything from our last time in Mexico. In march we had Jonas's parents on a visit for three weeks. We did a little bit of everything, such as sightseeing in Guadalajara, visited Ajijic and went to the pacific coast.

The first day we went to my aunts place on the country.

It's a nice place to escape the city life for a while and enjoy the greens.

The beautiful colors in Ajijic.

Lake Chapala

 We went to the "Guachimontones" pyramids outside of Guadalajara. 

Me and my aunt.

We also went to the coast of Nayarit again. 

This became our favorite place on our Mexico trip.

In this river you could enjoy yourself diving and jumping into the water because it became deep very fast.
