Wonderful story, Sven
It reminded me an interview segment I just read of cartographer Dennis Wood, in the latest issue (Jan 12) of the Believer ..... here is the excerpt
"There's a theorist named Leonard Bowden who had the idea that neighborhoods are created by eleven-year-old preadolescent males. In their running through the neighborhood and connecting families together, crossing fences, going into homes that their parents wouldn't go into, and knowing people that their parents would not even acknowledge, they create the neighborhood." ........
The full interview can be found here - no tikis, but lots of cool ideas on maps and geography
