Hi, Dan,

         Despite the fact that most hamlets are reached
by something as wide as a vehicle. it doesn't seem to be the case for the
houses at the upper left.
         Also it doesn't make sense for a road to become a path and 
then a road
again (though, I guess it's possible).
         I think it's likely that the houses at the upper left are 
reached only by
a path. The open areas in the front of them are probably ground beaten down
by repeated foot traffic, not by vehicle use.
         That's my take. I wonder what others think.
