This time we take a look at the village Soetedal, wich means, litteraly translated "Sweetvalley"
It is a small village lying in the valley with on bode sides walls of hills.
I wanted to publish this entry yesterday, but when I was finished with it Internet Explorer crashed
Well, this time I prepared a HUGE uptade, so I hope enjoy it!
An overview of the town an dits mainroads, in de centre you can see Soetedal, in the Southeast the edges of the capital suburbs Bijsterveld-Noord (Norhern-Bijsterveld) B'veld is a short form for Bijsterveld.
First, let's take a look at the suburb (you can clearly see the area of the first picture in the southeast of the overview)
The entrance road of an neighbourhood, the same as the picture before, but from a different angle.
Where the suburb ends in the vineyards.
I thought this suburb needed something Dutch: bikingpaths, they're not only for recreation, but mostly used for kids to bike to school and people biking to their work.
Here a bikingpath as it crosses the mainavenue.
The biking paths are layed-out trough the suburbs this way everbody has good access to it (those palm trees in the middle are a kind of unfortunately placed...)
The exit from the mainroads to the suburban mainavenue.
The way I ussualy build my suburbs: The streets end at the mainavenue the mainavenue brings the people to the regional network.
I do this because I think its pretty realistic, it is the same as in my hometown.
Randomk shot in rural setting.
Most main roads lay on the bottom of the valleys.
I was working on some signage, so here's the villages' entrance sign
The blue sign mentions (from up to down) The villages name, municipality name and the provincial name. The yellow sign says " welcome in Soetedal"
A small bussinessparc at the beginning of the village.
Most commerce developed along the mainroad, wich runs trough the whole city.
In "Downtown" Soetedal the mainroads divides itself, between the two streets is a small parc and the two old watertowers.
Rowhouses in the old quarter along an uphill road.
Because of the steep hills retaining walls were necessary here to prefend erosion.
Small shops at the end of the village.
Houses in a side valley.
A look in the valley from behind the hills.
