A clover leaf

This is a clover somewhere in a forest near Eugene, Oregon, the morning after a night of rain. A four-leaved clover is supposed to be lucky, this, however, is only a three-leaved one.

The price of fame

Below is a picture of Maria Mutola of Mozambique, arguably the greatest female 800m runner of all time, seconds after winning the 800m race at the 2007 Prefontaine Classic in Eugene, Oregon.

After a few minutes of catching her breath, she tries to get up with a bouquet in her hand, to run a lap of honor. Count the number of photographers surrounding her.

However, there are some cheap airlines such as German Wings which have some pretty good deals from Germany into Crete. The two main airports on Crete are in Chania and Heraklion (also spelled Iraklio.).
