THE BELLISSERIA POST OFFICE OPENS
The BBB is proud to announce our latest new and exciting service for you - The Post Office! This is a brand new innovation - the only one of its kind in SL, allowing you to both send and receive mail by Object or Notecard. Right now, we cover all of Bellisseria. We will be expanding to cover the whole grid very soon.
To participate - Teleport to BBB Post Office and choose your free mail box. Follow the included instructions and you are all set! On the counter you will find a basic card-making kit to which you can add your own textures. You will receive regular mail from BBB staff members and we highly encourage you to send personal letters and cards to your friends.
As with all BBB ventures - Everything you need to participate is provided for free. Just add your own creativity and enjoy. We look forward to hearing from you!
HON. AMBASSADORS TO HETEROCERA AND CORSICA APPOINTED
We offer our congratulations to Their Excellencies Ghostie (theghostofghost.resident) and Jack Vincent (idlingwastrel) on their respective appointments as Bellisseria's Honorary Ambassadors to the mainland continents of Heterocera and Corsica. They will take up their roles immediately and will set about building contacts with local residents.
The embassy in Corsica opens today in the Timescape region on the Circuit de Corse highway. There will be an opening ceremony (details to follow) on 19th November at which Abnor Mole will hand over the keys to the embassy to H.E. Jack Vincent. The ceremony will be followed by a formal ball (dress code: evening wear).
His Excellency Jack Vincent has homes in both Bellisseria and Corsica. The embassy in Heterocera is under construction and its location will be announced shortly, together with the date of the formal opening ceremony.
We now have 1,024 square metre plots of land on each of SL's mainland continents on which to build permanent Bellisserian Embassies. As a Bellisserian institution, we want to reach out to the rest of SL. Bellisseria is gradually expanding to connect the mainland continents in new ways and we believe that all parts of SL have an important role to play. The strictly non-commercial /residential-only covenant in Belli should give rise to commercial opportunities on the lengthening border with mainland for example.
There's a great sense of community in Bellisseria, but also an openness to participation by all SL'ers in our activities and events. Bellissarians actively welcome visitors from all over SL and we hope our embassies will help develop ever more friendly relationships.
They will also serve as a platform for new services from the BBB to mainlanders. Watch this space for news of that!
APPLICATIONS/NOMINATIONS ARE NOW OPEN FOR HON. AMBASSADOR ROLES
We have yet to appoint Bellisserian Honorary Ambassadors to the continents of Sansara, Satori, Nautilus, Gaeta, and Jeogeot. If you are interested in any of these roles or wish to nominate a suitable candidate, please apply to Boo Rojyo – founder and CEO of the BBB – in-world.
NEW STAMP LOCATIONS
We have two new LDPW locations this week. Our beloved Moles have placed a stamp terminal on the island of the Leviathan Skeleton – a well known landmark (or is that seamark?) to SL's sailing community. Now you can collect a stamp when next you sail by. They've also placed one at the new Fantasy Community Center, one of the most beautiful places in SL – perhaps the Moles’ masterpiece to date. Then we have the Litterbox bar and bowling alley and the Friendship Valley Pit Stop – a roadside gas station on Route 1 in Cleora.
Dragon Freight is an elevated rail yard and roadside GTFO! location. It's on Route 1 in Heterocera, which runs around the inner Atoll coast. Explorers are welcome and there's coffee in the cantina! DeyjaVoo's Great Escape is a beautiful location in the Nature category, which offers wonderful photo-opportunities. Finally, there's a new location (but not a new stamp) for Bellisseria's Embassy to Corsica.
