"In watching Klose over the last four tournaments, every goal he has scored has been less about himself and more of a means to an end - a result that wouldn’t arrive until what was likely his final match in a Germany shirt. But when it did, Klose sat stoically, alone on the German bench. At full-time, cameras panned to the German goal machine as he sat motionless next to the pitch. With his medal around his neck, he put his hands to his face while staring blankly at an empty field where his international career likely ended. Like his ability to fly under the radar at this World Cup edition, Klose seemed to act as though what had just happened was inexplicable. At his age, following four World Cup tournaments, the game’s greatest scorer had finally scored the final prize - a fitting end to a legendary career that was easy to miss if you didn’t take pause to realize World Cup greatness was in our midst."
Chefchaouen, a small town in northern Morocco, has a rich history, beautiful natural surroundings and wonderful architecture, but what it’s most famous for are the striking and vivid blue walls of many of the buildings in its “old town” sector, or medina.
The maze-like medina sector, like those of most of the other towns in the area, features white-washed buildings with a fusion of Spanish and Moorish architecture. The brilliantly blue walls, however, seem to be unique to Chefchaouen. They are said to have been introduced to the town by Jewish refugees in 1930, who considered blue to symbolize the sky and heaven. The color caught on, and now many also believe that the blue walls serve to repel mosquitoes as well (mosquitoes dislike clear and moving water).
Whatever the reason, the town’s blue walls attract visitors who love to wander the town’s narrow streets and snap some beautiful photos.
