Agats Town - part 6

Posted by
Stephen (Canberra, Australia) on 25 May 2012 in People & Portrait and Portfolio.

A proud Barça fan shows me his painted shop front. But this is no place to play a game of beach soccer - only mudflats once you leave the boardwalk.

You are with me on my walk around the town of Agats in the Asmat region of the Indonesian province of Papua.

Shows the wide market appeal of Barcelona FC, I remember a holiday in Bulgaria some 20 years ago when a young enterprising lad wanted to buy my two year old Barca shirt for the same price that I'd originally paid for it :-)
