OUT & ABOUT: CORSICA TOURIST CENTER
The CTC is one of the older stamp-issuing locations. Under previous ownership, it was once the secret location for a planned new vision of the BBB. We wanted to license our tech (free of charge) to people on other SL continents so they could issue their own passports. Disappointingly, our then partners pulled out. Happily, we found another way forward: the Continental Passport Control Board, issuing automated continental passports from our embassies. Sometimes you need to fail a time or two to succeed properly!
These memories were revived by our recent visit. We are fans (who isn't?) of the Corsica South Coasters (CSC). Their vision for this part of Corsica is an ideal much of mainland could aspire to. Like-minded land owners have agreed a theme and brought together their regions and plots to create an arty and beautiful area of SL which is a delight to explore. It's a place for an SL landowner to be his or her best self in a supportive and friendly environment. Freely-chosen community and cooperation really can make for a better virtual world. Their Flickr feed gives a good idea of the range of activities.
The current version of the Corsica Tourist Center belongs to the CK's Corner group. CK is Ceakay Ballyhoo, an SL artist and one heck of a landscaper. Under her stewardship, the CTC is an excellent information hub, blending seamlessly into richly-landscaped surroundings. It's directly on the Circuit de la Corse, the main road that runs right around the continent. There's a teleport directory to all the CSC locations and posters advertising current events. It warmed our cold bureaucratic hearts to see our stamp terminal on walking through the front door. There are also information boards for locations around Corsica and beyond.
Outside there's a charming tea garden, which is one of SL's cuter music venues. There's also a horse rezzer for equine tours of the area. If you'd like to get to know the CSC lands (and we recommend you do) we suggest you start right here and soak up all the information you could possibly need to make sure you enjoy it all.
