In the beginning there was the river and the mountains, and it was good. Then came the Indians. Then came man (and woman), and they settled among the trees and caught abundant fish from the river and loved the mountain view. And the people became more and more numerous and roads were carved and trees were cut down, but it was not yet 1920 and it was good.

Then, yeah, verily, man's (and woman's) numbers grew by leaps and bounds, and more trees were cut, and clogged roads were everywhere and fish were not so abundant in the river, but it was pretty good.

Now the Fairyland is vanishing, but the Great Developer in the sky is not alarmed ... it is as it has always been.

More people will keep coming, Rebekka, so get used to it.
