I've been bopping around the grid a bit lately and thought my few but loyal readers might appreciate a bit of exposition.
Of all the places I've visited recently, Roche is my favorite. It's a simple ruralscape, but done with great skill.
The owner is ddsm2 Mathy, a name that seems to give more of a hint about lifestyle than nationality, but even though the content isn't specifically Asian, the sim has that serene Japanese feel. Maybe the name of the bakery-- Misaki-- gave me a clue.
The only out-of-character element is the sim's single sign, which advertises free bicycle rides-- on full bright.
Paths are wonderfully contoured to the landscape.
I love this subtle drainage feature.

I think I'll walk around to the front of the trailer and say hi. Oops! Nope, better not. Those hats and expressions make them look like spree killers.
I found the bakery stunning. The level of detail was impressive.
I went back this morning with Sweetie. She took this wonderful photo:
It makes me feel like a shit for pushing her off the edge of the cliff.
