“Big burnt out tree trunk surrounded by chain link fence.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 3, 2012

A big burnt out tree trunk surrounded by chain link fence, way out on the Calzada in the burbs. I suppose it's a must for fans of early conquest history, if one can believe it's actually the correct tree. I like history and am especially fond of thinking about the Calzada being the old causeway into the city, but I must admit I was a bit underwhelmed. I don't know what I was expecting though, so there.
