Well, it's time for a weekend trip out of the bustling city of Vistalegre. Wheat fields are a common sight in the Iberian landscape, and now it's harvest time.

Now, people are working very hard during harvest.

As we drive down the road, we cross tractors full of harvested wheat.

The best place to stay in the weekend is a rural hotel somewhere in the middle of the fields...

And sometimes, the peace of the countryside stops when trains cross it...

This update was a test of how I could use the recently released VIP Team AgriPack (at STEX), and then to show a rural scene, out of the urban scenes I showcased before in my CJ, but I will bring new updates soon from Vistalegre.

Hope you liked it!! :golly:

This update has reminded me so much the time when I was a child and used to travel throughout Spain with my parens during the Summer!

Perhaps you should have illustrated this update with this poem:
[spoiler]CII [i]"Orillas del Duero"[/i], [i]Campos de Castilla[/i], [b]Antonio Machado[/b]

¡Primavera soriana, primavera
humilde, como el sueño de un bendito,
de un pobre caminante que durmiera
de cansancio en un páramo infinito!

¡Campillo amarillento,
como tosco sayal de campesina,
pradera de velludo polvoriento
donde pace la escuálida merina!

¡Aquellos diminutos peguajales
de tierra dura y fría,
donde apuntan centenos y trigales
que el pan moreno nos darán un día!

Y otra vez roca y roca, pedregales
desnudos y pelados serrijones,
la tierra de las águilas caudales,
malezas y jarales,
hierbas monteses, zarzas y cambrones.

¡Oh tierra ingrata y fuerte, tierra mía!
¡Castilla, tus decrépitas ciudades!
¡La agria melancolía
que puebla tus sombrías soledades!

¡Castilla varonil, adusta tierra.
Castilla del desdén contra la suerte,
Castilla del dolor y de la guerra,
tierra inmortal, Castilla de la muerte!

Era una tarde, cuando el campo huía
del sol, y en el asombro del planeta,
como un globo morado aparecía
la hermosa luna, amada del poeta.

En el cárdeno cielo violeta
alguna clara estrella fulguraba.
El aire ensombrecido
oreaba mis sienes, y acercaba
el murmullo del agua hasta mi oído.

Entre cerros de plomo y de ceniza
manchados de roídos encinares
y entre calvas roquedas de caliza,
iba a embestir los ocho tajamares
del puente el padre río,
que surca de Castilla el yermo frío.

¡Oh Duero, tu agua corre
y correrá mientras las nieves blancas
de enero el sol de mayo
haga fluir por hoces y barrancas,
mientras tengan las sierras su turbante
de nieve y de tormenta,
y brille el olifante
del sol, tras de la nube cenicienta!...

¿Y el viejo romancero
fue el sueño de un juglar junto a tu orilla?
¿Acaso como tú y por siempre, Duero,
irá corriendo hacia la mar Castilla?[/spoiler]

You have an applause from me!
