Goodbye 2010. Swedish Memories

When 2010 came only one thing was sure: I was going to Shanghai. I didn’t know for how long or what would happen after. I only knew I was going.

I went in February and met up with my boyfriend, who had traveled from Stockholm. We enrolled at the university, found a great studio apartment down town, and huddled together under our umbrella on our way to school, noodle shops, and fashion shows. Then came spring, and we watched the cherry trees blossom and wither as we strolled around town hand in hand in shorts and t-shirts, drinking green tea and watching grandmas doing tai chi in the park while the grandfathers bought ice cream for the grandchildren But then came summer, and the end of the semester. We had walked down to jing´an park and sat in the shade with a couple of ice teas, drying off sweat from our foreheads, when we decided that is was time to leave. My boyfriend felt he needed to go home and help care for sick family member. And even if I was sad, I felt that I had already gotten what I wanted from Shanghai. I had made new friends, learned a new language, eaten the food, been to the fashion shows, and even worked as a street photographer. I was satisfied. So, we walked home and bought tickets to Sweden.

Sweden was wonderful. We lived in a cozy timber house on the countryside, a couple hours outside of Stockholm. I spent my days riding my bike, sitting outside in the summer nights with my computer, drinking tea, eating carrot cakes, drinking wine, having barbecues, roasting marshmallows over the fire, breathing fresh air — and going to fashion shows. Stockholm Fashion week was definitely one of the highlights.

2010 has been amazing. But it’s almost over, so lets take a moment of silence for this amazing year and let 2011 begin! Happy New Year to all of you! Check out my latest blog post – WebDesign499 for more details.

    Ya en serio, hermoso el post, *no se porque* pero me identifique con tu historia sobre Shanghai. Y la fotografía está de poca madre. En serio, me encanta tu ojo y la calidad de las fotos; las últimas dos son mis favoritas.

    Por cierto, feliz año mujer, que logres todos tus sueños, que espero sean muchos. Que el Universo te siga regalando salud, el resto te toca a ti conseguirlo.

    Me dió un gustazo enorme descubrirte éste año.
