We’ve been fawning over Riz Ahmed for a while now. It is because of this obsession that we felt sort of hurt by his rather quiet and unannounced tour of Pakistan.
This past week Riz has taken to Instagram to post pictures of his trip, and they’re quite amazing. He visited Pakistan after 13 years, so he’s seeing the country through a whole new lens.
Riz focused on one thing every person visiting is attracted to
‘No one does cars, trucks & lorries like us’
Lorries! Now there’s a word that many of us haven’t heard in a while
Riz also pays ode to the bustling city of Karachi and its markets
He posted this almost fluid picture that captures the organized chaos of Juna Market
One of the comments under these photos read ‘you must be having a sensory overload’
If two words could describe the country, those would be it
Riz also gave us some beauty shots
And, are those Peshawari chappals we spot?
Also, Riz caught up with his crew from ‘The Reluctant Fundamentalist’
PS, you guys! Do you think there’s room for the fourth in your squad
He also met with the Khawaja Siraa community.
He accompanied his post with a huge description of their social situation in the country
He’s clearly trying to educate his international followers about ALL aspects of Pakistan
And honestly, that’s really refreshing
Everyone seems to be loving his posts
Especially this guy
Now there’s an interesting proposition
Of course, the tharak wouldn’t stop
Some couldn’t believe how great his photos came out
This is a really interesting observation
Travel recommendations were made
People were really appreciative that he covered the stories of the Khawaja Siraas
Some were REALLY happy that a man was the one creating awareness
PS: Riz, please do give us a heads up next time you’re visiting. We’d love to meet you KThnxBye
