Great build for Pa. I used the same strategy while playtesting because I wanted the fastest immigration possible. Your placement of bridges was superior to mine, and I used ferries too. Did you feel like you heard the voice of Great Buddha whispering to you to build the Great Temple on that little island in the middle? That enticement was my intention when I built this map. This map was definitely my favorite of the campaign.

Not sure I heard any whispers from the Great Buddha, but Gweilo Buddha dropped some hints about where he wanted the Great Temple!
Back in the day Shaun did some great work on farm site and crop efficiency - I don't recall the details but the gist was not to build 9x9 food farms unless you have three crops and drastically limit orchard sizes. Having decided to go 7x9 on two crop farms I spent a lot of time ensuring I could place farms/orchards with irrigation - your map just allowed this.
