Argentina, Yasir

Argentina. Yasir. Claremont/Sherbrooke, Montreal, 2011

Why Argentina? I asked.

“My friend gave it to me as a gift.”

I was turning around a street corner occupied by a bank (it almost always is) when through the dark glass, inside, I saw an Argentinian shirt at the ATM machine. As I was waiting I thought how all the national team shirts I met so far are South American. But out came Yasir in his No. 10 Messi jersey. Yasir is from Pakistan and was presented with the Argentinian shirt from a friend who is from Morocco, talking to, and photographed by, a Bosnian guy, here in Canada. Canadian immigration officials shouldn’t be taking all the credit for this meeting of five continents since large responsibility lies in what’s known as Messi magic.
