Fake Villages

Apparently the big budget corporate fake village shopping zone is catching on in Europe as well. This scene, meant to emphasize the fact of snow, is of "Clarks Village" in Street, England.

Here is a busy day at Austin's "The Domain", a privately owned shopping center that is also one of our few tolerable walking neighborhoods.

(To be fair, I am discovering that the park system here is great on foot, though the idea that it is bikable is pure BS.)

But I don't see why a place with real villages would want fake ones.
