View of a Modern City - SimCity Video Game

View of a Modern City - SimCity Video Game

If you want to test your skills at becoming the mayor of a small city in Haiti, try playing the game SimCity

SimCity is an open-ended city-building computer and console video game series in which the player is given the task of founding and developing a city, while maintaining the happiness of the citizens and keeping a stable budget.

The player (acting as mayor) is given a blank map to start with, and must expand their city with the budget they have.

As the city matures, the player may get to place government and other special buildings (such as a mayor's house or courthouse), depending on how large their city is.

The player must supply services to their citizens. These include health, education, safety, parks and leisure. These come in the form of different buildings, where each building covers a circular "range" of service. Inadequate funding of these services can lead to strikes.

Cities must also provide basic utilities, namely electricity, water and (in SimCity 3000 and SimCity 4) waste management.

Many Haitians use a refrigerator ONLY to chill water, keep the juice cold and to make ice

Refrigeration in Haiti -- At my cousin's home in Haiti she has a refrigerator but the only thing you will find in it is a pot of water, juice and two big aluminium bowl in the freezer part to make ice... Nothing else

Although food is going bad on her dining room table, she will not put it in the refrigerator.

Ask her why, she replies: "Mwen pa manje manje dòmi" (I do not eat left over food)

Hmmmmm...

What do you think about that?
