Why Real? I asked.
“I like the shirt and the team.”
Juan was waiting for a bus, all crouched on the bench within the bus-stop glass enclosure, when I approached him. He was very kind and stepped outside so I can take a picture. This is the first long sleeves shirt I encountered, which reminded me that soon the jerseys will be hidden under sweaters and jackets. How do I work around that little problem since moving to the Southern Hemisphere, to Seychelles maybe, is not an option? Juan is from Seychelles. He went back for a visit last year and he bought the jersey there. Real Madrid seems to be doing something right when it comes to propaganda, so far I encountered their jerseys more than any others. This one, at least, had Raul written on his back, not that other guy.
