7/September/2022 in Sarajevo

What I fell in love with the most in Balkans was probably not beautiful Balkan ladies🤭, but roses

It is roses that I've been pleased with in Balkans

Since I arrived in Serbia in 1/June, I've been able to see roses everywhere everyday

In Tokyo, roses usually can be seen only in May

I don't have any specific preference in flowers, but it's undeniable to feel something special with roses

I prefer wild roses on the streets to the ones in shops or gardens

Some are bitten by insects, some lack colours, some are faded, some are about to die

In other words, they're not "too beautiful"

This imperfections feel somewhat approachable and amicable

This casualness & friendliness also fits my image and experiences of Balkans & its people
