Monterrey Rayados. Miriam. St. Catherine/Mackay, Montreal, 2012

Why Rayados? I asked.

“That’s my home team.”

Only seconds into our conversation I learned that her favourite team, Rayados de Monterrey, won their league match in Mexico the day before. Miriam is a true fan. Back in Monterrey she goes to the stadium and gives her team a proper support. She recently came to Montreal with intention to stay for six months and study English and French. And I am glad she did.
