This bid will be updated sporadically as I get more of it ready for presentation, stay tuned.
Note: I did some of the translation myself, but most I just did with Google, so it probably isn't all right.

Traditon of Tapas
Insulo has unique and diverse culinary tradition. Food in Insulo is an entire cultural experience in itself. The tradition of tapas makes going out for food at night an exciting adventure that is different every time. At night the streets come alive with people "van de tapas", which literally means going to tapas, expressing it's status above a simple trip to a restaurant.

Influence of the Sea
Seafood is an important aspect of Insulonian gastronomy, with plentiful fishing grounds encircling the country. The diet in most coastal regions, such as the Hogara region that contains Erikkson, consists mostly of seafood, served in just about any manner imaginable. The specific seafood served depends heavily on the season and the "Catch of the Day", so you can experience a variety of seafood options and explore new flavors.

The Art of Jamón
Ham is Insulo is not you basic deli meat ham, Insulonians take their ham seriously. A special variety called Jamón Alcadía is prized above all others. To bear this prestigious name the ham must come from an Alcadean Black Pig, raised with free range of a specified amount of area per pig in the traditional manor. The ham is then dried for two weeks, after which it is cured for 12-48 months until it is ready for sale. The ham is traditionally served in very thin slices, sometimes as part of a tapas offering.

I'm new to this so you may have to bear with me, but I want to put the work into it. I hope you like what I produce. I may create some custom venues myself for some of the less represented sports, but I'm not quite comfortable with the BAT yet, so I don't know how well they'll turn out. I won't be able to put out much until next week, when my school load will decrease substantially. I don't really expect to win, but I'd like to be a contender.

Well, I've got a little bit for you today,the logo. Hope you like it, I might make a few changes, like making the confetti bigger, but I like the theme. Don't expect anything in the way of pictures for about a week, I have a bunch of school stuff in these couple of weeks before the end, especially this one because this is when seniors get out.

EDIT: I'm just going to update the top post with the bid, my other posts will just be to announce updates and respond to comments. I think this will make the bid easier to see.

That motto probably won't be the final one, I just used it to fill the logo until I can come up with something better, but it does state the theme I'm going for. Sorry, no update today, to much rl stuff, I'm making this post right before I go to bed. Thank you all for the complements, and I'll try to update tommorrow.

Posted a video I threw together today in the top post, it is just a teaser and does not include pictures of my city, sorry. It would have, but I noticed something I didn't like in my screenshots before posting then and decided to hold off, maybe next time, which may be Tuesday evening.

The Insulo Simylympic Committee has decided that it is best to hold off the bid until November, due to organization and construction complications.

I'm sorry, I don't want to do it until i've got it the way I like, and I think it would be much better for me in November. I hope that my taking time will produce something that you all will like, currently I am updating the transportation network with the NWM and new RHW. Sorry for complicating things by changing my mind, good luck to everyone still bidding!

Beautiful photo editing effects. Glad someone else will be representing the COFR with me Smile

Although one problem: Athletics requires a track, and your Simlympic stadium doesn't have a track Razz then again you could try photoediting one in but that looks a bit tricky

looks great also just for a note the Simlympic stasium doesn't have to host the Track and Field while taht may be the conventional way sometimes having a separate one wouldn't be bad
