Well we're taking a break from the media barrage for an update on the town of Paxí on a small island in the far south of Maresa near the Andalusian sea border. I worked really hard on this relatively small town, so I hope you like it.

Although it is in prime location for a tourist mecca, Paxí has managed to retain it's small town charm through extremely restrictive zoning laws that essentially prohibit all new growth, which has kept the town true to the form of the town that have occupied these islands for as long as anyone can remember.

We start with a glimpse of Paxí pristine beaches, rarely traversed by the sandal-clad feet of tourists.

More of the beaches glistening in the warm sun.

You can only wish you lived here, most of the towns residents wouldn't sell these homes for their lives.

The town center with the mission built in 1298 to convert the citizens of these islands to Christianity. Services are no longer held inside the building, and are instead held outside in the square until the parish can gather enough funds to build a new church.

Another square and the town football pitch, where citizens enjoy their favorite pastime, other than sitting on the beach and watching the sunset of course.

A winery just outside of town, with a villa building that was built in 1566. The land has been in use for wine making for longer than any other parcel of land in Insulo.

Now here's something I've never done before, but I think it turned out quite well. Mosaic!
