  1. Wow, that's a big population growth in such a short space of time. Understandable, though, as it looks very attractive there.

  2. I find the place very attractive, it's amazing how quickly the population has grown as well, having the support of cliffs is a really good idea when they built it as well, great post as always Bay Girl.

  10. The populations of the places you've mentioned, always seem small and that is very attractive to me. The little community I live in, has 32,000 people and it isn't that dang big!
