not sure about
"cities are our future"
i think they are our past having outlined their use...

and i hope at the end of this game
they don't just pick top scores or someone out of the hat from the top 100
and we have a way to personally recommend
because you'd get my vote :)

The secret was living on the water via boats common in many developing countries like Myanmar. This is a real Indian boat home made of wood and this provides a shelter for many peoples around the world.
