Riz Ahmed Is Travelling Around Pakistan And Honestly, Why Weren't We Invited?

By Arslan Athar | 7 Mar, 2018

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

Also, Riz caught up with his crew from ‘The Reluctant Fundamentalist’

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
