Impressive video about Kenya, looks too good to be true.
Between Manchester and Preston in England there was a 'new town' built recently, in fact I think some of it is still under construction. Its Buckshaw...or Buckshaw Village which I think is the full name...its pretty typical of modern english development, more suburban that Europe but less suburban than the US...

The plan...

The homes... (I like them although due to their suburban style most people here will hate them haha)
