7 Coloring Our Lives ; gdjcY i ] Z QdgaY gZZc MlZYZh Can you imagine waking up one morning with bright green hair ? Well , that’s what happened to the people of a small town in Sweden . Who or what was to blame ? At first the drinking water was suspected . Water experts investigating the case tested the water for copper * , because they knew that copper can turn hair green . But the amount of metal in the water was normal . They were confused . Then they noticed that the people’s hair usually turned green after taking a hot shower in the morning . So they tested the hot water . They discovered very high levels of copper . The experts then tested the hot water again and found another surprising fact : there were higher levels of copper in new homes than in old . There was a problem with the new pipes . How did the town solve the problem ? People were told to wash their hair in cold water so that their hair would stay its natural color . Or – they could move to an older house ! MeVc ^ h ] < ajZ Visitors to Juzcar , a village in southern Spain , will find that all the houses are painted blue instead of white . A film company painted the houses blue for a new movie . Now that the movie is finished , the villagers don’t want to paint them white again ! Which movie needs a blue village , you may ask . A Smurf * movie , of course ! The villagers want to keep their houses blue because their town now attracts thousands of tourists every year . Smurf fans fill the village , buying Smurf souvenirs * , touring the sites , visiting the Smurf fair and enjoying other Smurf events . The mayor , who has been named Papa Smurf , is delighted . He says it has made the villagers happy and created jobs as well . He says proudly , “ Thanks to being painted blue , we are known throughout the world . ”
