Chefchaouen, a small town in northern Morocco, is most famous for their vivid blue walls in its “old town” sector. The maze-like medina sector features a fusion of Spanish and Moorish architecture.

They are said to have been introduced to the town by Jewish refugees in 1930, who considered blue to symbolize the sky and heaven.

Afghan Girl, Peshawar, Pakistan, 1984 - Steve McCurry - I've always loved this photo. Saw a documentary last year, they found her again. At 50 years old she looks like an 80 year old woman. Very, very sad what life as a woman in this country does to you.
