Sorry that I didn’t post last night! Olympic fever is madness~~~ My YesAsia order arrived yesterday! Sugoi NE! Photobook Fever at its MAX~~~~~ I devoured Dandelion, you wouldn’t believe it. I saw the photos, swooned over many of them, and went mad with super concentration to try to read. Because, as you know, Amy doesn’t read Japanese.
Photos of the photos ahead! Like before, I doubt I will be posting scans… support Yu, people! ^^
I think Dandelion has way cooler photos than Travel Sand, because I just love all the fabrics and textures Yu Aoi was wearing in the photos due to the EXTREME cold weather. I only missed the old format of having handwritten letters from Yu~~~ there’s just something so personal about seeing the handwriting. However, I totally understand that typed content is easier to read…
In this trip, Yu visits Russia, and does some Siberia time~~ though I can’t figure out many of the names (if not all) due to my lack of Russian and overall Asian geography knowledge. ハバロフスク (HABARUFUSUKU) -> Siberia -> イルクツク (IRUKUTSUKU) -> ブリャート (BURYATO) -> アルシャン (ARUSHAN) -> ウラジオストク (URAJIOSUTOKU).
**EDIT** (9.15pm) – Here is what I found out~~ Please, leave a comment to correct any info xD – Khabarovsk, Siberia, Irkuts, Buryatskaya, Archamps, and Vladivostok. See, don’t know any! xD
**EDIT** Aug. 30th – Thank god for Wiki and Google Translate! xD Here’s the above:
Also, it was VERY cold, and Yu will show you… though I think she was crazy. See for yourself~
And look at all the “it’s so freaking cold” instances~~~ Like REALLY COLD!
Yu also has a NIFTY camera… we need more photos taken by Yu. She’s got a nifty 8mm, which she shows off in a couple of shots~~~

Also, do Russians use chopsticks??? Coz there’s a photo of Yu eating Russian food (and more MORE eating) with chopsticks~~~ did she carry hers around?? xD
Also… Yu and Yoko-san decided to play around with Inu-chan (dog)~~~ a tiny dog xD – ALSO! Yu decided to channel a Travel Sand pose, and then I think Japanese tourists recognized her, so she ended up signing some autographs… Yu Aoi in Russian~~
