A CULTURAL GRID HERITAGE: THE GREAT WALL
Sometimes we don't really notice the old things that seem to have been there forever Together with H.E. Yukiko Yeshto, I'm delighted to offer a tour that lets you experience the old in a new way by rail, air, bus and horse.
The tour is scheduled to last one to one-and-a-half hours. It starts at 12pm SLT on November 5th from the station at Tersa. Please watch out in the group notices for further information.
MT CAMPION PHOTOGRAPHY TOUR
Mount Campion National Forest has announced its first ever Photography tour. This will be different from the usual park tours, because the emphasis is on SL photography and taking pictures of their scenic park.
The tour will begin at 8:00 AM SLT on Sunday Oct 30 at the Mount Campion Art Gallery.
It will start with a short lesson from WrenNoir Cerise, who is the co-founder and co-instructor of Visionaire’s Institute of Photography. Visionaire has been training people in SL photography for years, and has turned out a lot of outstanding and skilled photographers. Wren’s talk will be on SL voice only (no text in local chat), and the topic is “Taking Nice Pictures.”
After Wren’s talk, the tour of the park will continue, taking in five particularly scenic areas and giving people ten to fifteen minutes at each location to take pictures. This part of the tour is expect to last approximately 90 minutes. Information will be provided about each location in local chat if there is anyone who is unable to hear SL voice.
People are invited to submit some of the pictures they take during the tour for display in the park's gallery. If you are unable to do the tour, you can still take pictures and submit them at the gallery's mailbox.

The Gazette and the Parade of Homes Review are published using Typepad.com, a hosted blogging service. Your editor has been using it (for his RL blog) since September 2006 and it's always been reliable. Of late however, following a migration to new servers, there have been technical issues and we've noticed in the Citizens Group chat, for example, that some of you have had problems getting to us. We do apologise.
If you're a fitness enthusiast with transporter phobia, you'll have been wondering how to visit the gym and mini golf course etc. at Ashworth. Today we have good news for you as Ashworth Heliport has opened. Let's face it, Second Life® is even more fun when you get into air, sea, road and rail transport. TPs are a banal at best, nauseating at worst, mode of transport.
Speaking of transport, there's a friendly biker club to be found in Nautilus called Lele Air & Space. Also to be found in Nautilus is Ho'onanea Club & Marina. Both locations are now issuing our passport stamps to be sure to record your visit officially when checking them out.
