You may call me Erik or erjolog. I shall be showcasing a city I built for the following 2 1/2 months, after which I shall suddenly disappear into thin air (I'm a Civil Engineering Student), but until then, please do enjoy and comment on the updates!. Without further due, let me present to you:

"SUREP-GUAVA, a city in the great ALZAZIBAR"


A preview of what shall be coming next:


Again, Good morning! =D

What a great looking city. It's very hilly and you use that hilliness very well. Also, the city has a great mix of densities from dense highrises to open areas at the river and west part of the city. Very well done.

I was born in what they now call 'Old Shinkansen.' Back then my family was part of the 'new wave' of immigrants seeking for a better life in prosperous Surep.


Things changed. After almost 20 years abroad, it is time to come back home, to the smell of mum's cooking pots and old chairs in our small flat in Jakarta Street.


I still remember my years at the institution, the biggest school that had been built in the city, now with outdated facilities.


Back then it used to be a modern neighbourhood, now it is one of the oldest, even the areas called 'New Shinkansen.'


Old or new, rich or poor, it doesn't matter, it will always be home to my childhood...


The sunsets at what they now called 'Panasonic Beach,' at a time unpolluted, are now surrounded by capitalism.


There's a smell, a marine taste that Shinkansen will never lose.


An atmosphere of hard-working people who look to improve.

But that's not why I am here.

Thanks again for your comments! I hope I am not building up too much expectations !! Embarassed
Anyhow, as promised, here comes the next update:

__________________________________________________________________________________

My good friend Figaro called me that morning. - Let's meet up tonight!


I sped along Shinkansen Blvd, leaving a trail of dust behind me.

I was astonished to see how much Surep had changed during my absence.


I drove all the way past Aurora Tower to Citic Park, and there he stood.

He had been waiting for me to come, he said as we went in to the hole where we would chug down a couple beers before getting into the serious talk.


More Pictures, but now of Surep Blvd. Remember this place, s.th might happen here soon!

Response to comments:

Thank you guys Embarassed
Sorry about taking longer to update, but internet is not as fast where I am Smile.
Anyhow, here's the next update, hope you enjoy!
___________________________________________________________________________________

-"I'm sorry about your what happened to your father" - he said - "but we must proceed according to plan." Deep inside I knew he was right. It was of the utmost importance to continue our endeavour.


My friend was staring at the bubbles rising up, growing until popping inside his glass of beer. It was a hot sunny day, unlike any other I used to remember.


-"Do you want a smoke" - Figaro asked. I nodded. There's a place nearby. I've been informed we can get the necessary supplies from there.


So we drove along Charles Dana Rd. "Yeah, things have changed around here'- said Figaro, as I stared at the luxurious residential high rises, next to the 4 lane road topped by palm trees.


We reached Charles Dana Station, and entered the pedmall across down to a small retailer where we met chief police officer Landa.


"Alright, you made it this far guys" - Landa frowned - "It's time to take this bad guys down, and destroy their network of evil. Follow me. I'll show you your 'tools.'" - The big guns, I thought.


A river of words followed, with all the details of the plan we'd carry, but I couldn't concentrate, and my mind often diverted to other thoughts, my father, my mum, Lucy...


The night had fallen upon us, and it was time for me and Figaro to leave.


You go, I told him, I have to do something first.


I took the night train to Gateway station, looking back for love of my life.

Bonus Pictures:

The dawn was coming, with its misty fog,

and all the lights up in the city... well, I don't doubt it's Engineering majors studying for today's class Wink .
