As Baragan embraced the topography of the lava flow site rather than flattening it and starting with a plain the residents had the pleasure of an undulating and varied environment. Vistas would open as one moved around a rocky outcropping, pools of water would be revealed, staircases cut into the rock would lead down to other levels and the air, free of the heavy scents of traffic, could carry the more subtle scents of plants which change with the time of day. The whole environment presented a pleasing range of stimulus for both body and mind.
