AMBASSADORS WANTED

E74F727C-6FA4-4C26-A2BD-7F6B8E60FE9DWe are about to recruit Bellisserian Honorary Ambassadors to the Mainland continents of Sansara, Satori, Nautilus, Gaeta, Corsica, Heterocera, and Jeogeot. We will be opening embassies on each continent Soon®. The first will be on Corsica.

The role of Honorary Ambassador will be an interesting and fun annual appointment. It's official only insofar as it's sanctioned by the Bellisserian Bureau of Bureaucracy, which is responsible for running the embassies. The role is open to all current Bellisserian residents.

If not already holders of a Bellisserian passport, Hon. Ambassadors will need to apply on appointment. A special diplomatic passport will be issued in due course.

Each Hon. Ambassador will have access to the Ambassador's Office in their embassy, which will double as a Function Room. They will represent and advocate for Bellisseria on the relevant continent. They'll be expected to get close to local residents and also to become their advocate within Bellisseria. 

For example if that continent has an established railroad system they might want to join all the local and SL-wide Rail Groups to raise their profile. All embassies are accessible either by road or rail. 

Hon. Ambassadors will be expected to organise an official event at least once every two months. This might, for example, be a 'grand ball' in the Embassy Function Room, or an accompanied tour of the continent. The frequency and type of events will be up to them. This is a new role, and they will have the the opportunity to develop it in their own style – as long as they represent Bellisseria in a good light.

Ambassadors will be appointed by, but not employees of, the Bellisserian Bureau of Bureaucracy as they need some level of independence. However they will have the full support of the BBB both in spirit and action. We will help with publicity for events and provide support where resources permit.

The salary is identical to that of all BBB staff, i.e. zero! However we can promise a one hundred per cent pay rise every month!! This should be a fun role for residents who enjoy networking and want to know SL better. Hon. Ambassadors  will get the opportunity to dress up, look important, and have a groovy title!

Seriously though, if you are interested in becoming an Hon Ambassador for Bellisseria, watch for announcements in the BBBug Group and here at the BBB Gazette.

Riot Hax and Kalia Anatine are celebrating their wedding. It will be the inaugural event at the new Bellisseria Fantasy Community Center region, which opens at 11am SLT today. This very special event will continue until 10pm SLT tomorrow.
 
Everyone is invited and LMs / SLURLs will be distributed today via the following groups: 
  • Bellisseria Citizens
  • Bellisseria Events
  • BBBug
  • Parade of Homes
  • Bellis Blues Café
 
For 14 years their love has grown and been shared in both worlds and now also encompasses the joy of family. After a 9 month SL pregnancy, on January 24th, 2020 they shared with all their friends in Bellisseria the news of the birth of their SL babies Amelia Abigail Hax and Aaron Edward Hax.

MAINLAND TRAIN PASSPORT TOURS COMING SOON

SLRR

At long last, the Heterocera Mainline SLRR track will have a BBB Passport touring leg going through it. It will cover a stretch of about one-quarter to one-third of it, from NorTon John's Biker Bar in Sweet Bay all the way up to SwiftWater Valley in Concinna.

There are 5 stamps to collect in all, and they are evenly spread out, so there will be little chance for boredom, as we pass through the quasi-industrial southwest area, up to the more remote parts of the region. 

All of this in an attempt to recognize what Second Life residents have presented for public consumption on the SL Mainland. 

Incidentally, the Heterocera SLRR main line is the longest stretch of railroad in Second Life.  Stay tuned to the Gazette and the BBBug for more details.

NEW STAMP LOCATIONS

You have just one day to collect the first of this week's new stamps. It's a special event stamp for the wedding described in our lead article. This stamp is so ephemeral, it's never even going to make it into the Online Travel Guide! It is available today only so don't miss it. There is no SLURL here as the region will not be released until the wedding starts, so monitor your Bellisseria Groups for the location!

We have a new art gallery / studio in Bellisseria – Shakti Studio. Shakti Adored is an American photographer, acrylic and digital painter. If you'd like to visit more art galleries in Bellisseria, there's a useful guide here – including some that (shame!) don't offer visa stamps to visitors. 

The two new LDPW locations this week, where our beloved Moles have placed stamp terminals on public land, are at Libestus Pier and Seven Chickens Bridge.

[As always, please click on photos and stamp images to see full-sized versions]

Looking forward to the events at the new Fantasy Community Center, what a way to open it with this wedding!
And then the 7 (!!!) Bellisserian Embassies on mainland to be opened in very soon near future!
Great news, great happenings for Bellisseria. Just displaying this community has been so wonderful for so many people for a good bit of time now and even way more time ahead of us. Happy days :-D

/me wonders if all openings will include wine

Dave

It’s an advantage of SL that you can keep a whole wine cellar in your inventory Zoe! Much more efficient than a hip flask. Cheers! 🍷

What exciting news this week with the 7 Embassies and the Wedding of Riot and Kalia at the new Bellisseria Fantasy Community Center. Keep up the great work, Dave. :)

Dave

You are far too kind, Pru. Every article this week was written by someone else (including one by you, for which many thanks).

There *was* a time when the Gazette was the sole work of its editor but as the BBB develops so we are achieving a much better, richer mix of content and I am happy to be (as my job title says) an editor. My own contribution is often now just the "New Stamp Locations" article and photos.

You are right that this is a very exciting edition though. So much is going on. Forza Bellisseria!!
