Likable LA

Hi Everybody.

So now I feel I must admit that I'm slowly starting to like LA. In the beginning it was just too big, scary and complex (and it still is). However today I can see that there are many things we will miss when we move back to the civilized Europe. There are simply so many interesting things here. This crazy city is just so diverse in every sense, which is cool. Living here has also changed my perspective on things, hopefully for the better. In this way I feel I've really learned something since I came here, and gained experience that will be helpful in the future.

Anyways, back to what me and Dorte are up to these days. Last weekend we finally went to Joshua Tree National Park. We've been talking about going there for over a year. Joshua Tree NP is located in the high desert only 2 and half hours drive from LA. We only went on a day trip and hiked together with a couple of our friends, Johan från Svergie, and Mohammad from Egypt. It's an amazing place, which is actually full of life. Now is also the wild-flower season so plants of all colors were blooming. Check out the pictures below.

On Sunday we went to the Brewery art colony here in LA, which is the world's largest art colony. Here artists have taken over several unused large industrial buildings in a sketchy part of Downtown LA, and created a colony where several hundred artists now live and work. Two times a year more than 100 of these artists open up their apartments to the public and put their art on display. It was really a cool event to check out! It was interesting to see all the different art, as well as the apartments, which were usually decorated and designed in creative ways. We didn't really take any pictures, since we found it weird taken pictures in peoples homes... so you'll just have to take our word for it... that it was awesome.. dude.

Till next blog
