Carife again, plus a teaser...



Okay, so I'm back from my trip. A couple of things in San Pedro have changed:

1. The bell tower in Carife. I have this kind of OCD thing where the landmarks in the city need to "feel" right. Unfortunately, that tower just didn't seem to feel right with the Mediterranean feel. So... I picked a new one. For good, I hope!





2. A new high-rise office building has been built. Called "Dexia" apparently. :P


ALSO.... I've been working on a new city. I plan on, in the future, making a CJ based off of it. It's inspired by my recent travels... mostly based on Poland, with elements of other European countries.




Having been to Poland a million times, I figured I might as well do something inspired by that country.

nicely done, the Mediterranean style can be hard to pull of but you've managed to make it look authentic.

Very nice!!!

Some questions: where did you get that Corte Ingles building? And the building with the clock in the second pic?

Also i´ve seen in your CJ one big Plaza de Toros. Where can I get that?

Thanks! I love your CJ.

I'm not very convinced about how the new tower fits in, but I guess that's just a matter of personal taste; it's not that easy to find medieval arabesque buildings out there.

On the other hand, I love how the glass high-rise fits. It is like the whole place had "suffered" some kind of urban renewal (as many Mediterranean cities have) and this is the result, very realistic IMO. I'm pretty sure it would have been a controversial project...

As for the Polish-styled city, I think we all want to see more!

Nifty. And the bell tower works nicely I think. So, where did you go and show us some pix! As for Poland, my favorite places were Cracow and Warsaw. Oddly enough, the best goulash I ever had was in Cracow, not Hungary :D
