Hello everyone, today we're going to go back to Insulo! The city we'll visit is one that has hardly got any mention before now, Purto Maculo in the far-eastern Basque-speaking region of Insulo.

Here is a map of Insulo, Purto Masculo is on the far right in white:



First we'll see some anchovy fishing boats out at sea near the city. The waters here are plentiful in seafood that plays a big role in the diet of the city.



Now we go to the border between the city and the beach. The beach here, called Hondartza Harrigarri, goes very far inland and is one of the most famous beaches in Insulo.



A picture of the Lehoikumek neighborhood showing a canal that brings water to the city from a nearby river. The canal was once an important shipping route to inland towns, but with the advent of roads and railroads became largely recreational.



A wide boulevard near the main plaza of the city featuring numerous sculptures from a variety of time periods. Purto Masculo has long been a favorite location of artists of all kinds. Also shown are two cannons that once guarded Purto Masculo's strategic position between the Insulonian and Posillipan Kingdoms.



Finally we go even further back in the history of Insulo, here you see an ancient Insulonian temple. The temple itself is in ruin, but an urn inside that will soon be extracted to the national history museum is remarkably intact.



Hope you enjoyed this city, I put a lot of hard work into this and you can expect to visit it again.

-Jon

Hello everyone, we are again visiting the picturesque seaside, and mountainside, town of Purto Masculo.

Here is the map just for your reference, the city is on the far right in white:



To start this time we see the beginnings of a beautiful sunrise in the mountains outside the city as a sheepherder tends to his flock.



Now as the sun reaches it's full brightness we arrive in the small hamlet called Dedí along the winding road into the mountains.



Now we find our selves in the jumbled narrow streets where car traffic is banned for the safety of everyone, drivers and pedestrians alike. This particular neighborhood is called Lehoikumek, or Lion Cubs in the Basque language native to the region.



Finally we see St. Peter's Cathedral flanked by two massive columns from ancient Insulonian times that have be made into decorative pieces adorned with christian sculptures.



Hope you liked this update, I very much like working with this city and have put a lot of extra work into it with all the lotting. I very much appreciate comments, both complimenting and critiquing, so feel free to respond.

I'm lotting my Simlympic Park Razz and I agree, it makes playing the game a lot more fun, because it looks that much better. But you've done something much cooler, nice work Smile

Except that those are grapes, which grow in Iowa but aren't terribly common.

Hello again everyone, I have a short update for you today. We are once again going to be exploring the area around the city of Purto Masculo, shown in white on the far right on the below map:



This update is going to highlight some more natural scenes outside the city and in the foothills of the mountains.

This photo shows a winery and cattle ranch near the base of the foothills and accessible only by narrow gravel roads, this region is famous for it's fine white wines. The power lines shown provide power from hydroelectric dams in the mountains to the city.



The next picture shows a group of loggers working in front of a dried river bed. Logging in the region is heavily restricted with age limits and quotas to prevent deforestation.



The final picture shows a rest stop along TIE-284 heading toward the border with Posillipo in the beautiful and peaceful forest east of the city.



Hope you enjoyed this rather short update, I might not be able to do updates as often for a while because I have returned to school. I will, however, try to get at least one update each month.Sorry about that.

-Jon
