#4 A look at the Hutchville Municipality

Now that we've seen Jackson, let's get in the car, and take the N2 southbound. We don't have to drive long to get to the town of Menton. Menton has a weird background: the town used to be a castle, which used canals to defend itself against possible intruders. However, during the ages the castle was inhabited, no intruders showed up, so the people got less concerned with their safety and let the tower bridge lowered at all times. Until some day, somebody did show up and had an easy time destroying the castle. Why this happened is not 100% sure, but it is believed that Captain Jackson, the English captain who discovered the Chutao Delta, wanted to start a new land without having to deal with their original inhabitants. So he simply annihalated it's only inhabitants, which lived at the castle. The only thing that were left are the canals, which are today a tourist attraction on it's own, and a piece of the castle, which now houses the local Police Department (seen in the middle of the picture). 



The mayor of Hutchville, however, isn't that great in keeping national treasures and started building a mid-rise appartments street with mid-rise commercial just outside Menton. Let's hope he won't damage the surroundings any further...


Let's get back in that car and take the N2 further. After a while, we reach Hutchville, the municipality's capital. Looking at this city, it seems far from finished, so it's not worth taking any pictures. Only the Ocean Drive looks promising. Let's hope the mayor will do a better job on Hutchville than he did on Menton...


We get back in the car and take another avenue: the N9. The N9 connects Hutchville to the Jackson Port and halfway down the road, we see a village to our right. We get off the N9 and take a road to this village, called Oakfield. This tiny historic village also has a story to tell. Do you see the church? Do you also see that it's clock tower is missing? Good, this explains why the village looks like how it looks now. The settlers who first settled here were all physicists. They adored and worshipped Isaac Newton. In his honor, they built a church, the Newton Church. Somehow, ironically, it's tower fell off a few years later, setting fire to the shops located next to it, burning them to the ground. Only the shops and the tower were lost. That's why you see the modern shops next to the older houses. Nobody knows why it happened, but if it was planned from above, who knows what Poseidon has to offer with his water tower...
