Football Match in the Pamirs

Football Match in the Pamirs

Flat grassy land is at an absolute premium in this high altitude and often dry landscape. So a football pitch is a rarity, I stumbled upon this match in progress and got an extra loud cheer as I pulled up beside the pitch. I soon found out why - the home team play in orange and their strip exactly matched the colour of the bike I was riding - they thought I was a new team mascot.
