NEWS:

THERE.COM CLOSING
Nalates Urriah

Nalates sent around a group message to D’ni Refugees providing this link. This is sad news for all of us that a metaverse is being closed off. Any who choose to come to SL or OSgrid will be warmly welcomed into the community and any help and assistance will be given. Anyone who has not been in SL before, use the Search to find D’ni Refugees, Uru Cavern Skydivers or just put in Myst, Uru, D’ni and look for these groups or member names of people who are showing online and IM them. We will provide as much assistance as we can.

EXPLORATION:

AL ANDALUS ALHAMBRA & AL ANDALUS GENERALIFE
DMom2K Darwin
http://slurl.com/secondlife/Al%20Andalus%20Alhambra/59/150/47

When you arrive here, take the magic carpet for a tour of the sim. The tour gives you the history of the buildings, plazas and various areas including the fortress of the Alhambra and the royal palace.

Top ten things to do in Al Andalus:
1.    Visit the magnificent Majid (Mosque);
2.    Wander the exhibits in the Al Partal Plaza.
3.    Explore the inner walls, rooms and passages of the Fortress;
4.    Walk through the City Bazaar, and Muslim, Christian and Jewish Quarters;
5.    Drop in to visit the Convivencia Institute in the Summer Palace, or one of the organizations you’ll find in Al Garnata village.
6.    Wander through the Generalife Gardens. See a show,  dance in the Al Zahra
Entertainment Complex, or enjoy a tender moment by the falls.
7.    Check out the lamps and fountains of the clothes’ washhouse located next to the Majid (Mosque);
8.    Walk out the Gate of Iron (by the majiid / mosque) and take the scenic route down the mountain all the way past the Bridge of the Cadi and the river Darro, and then explore the Albaycin Nature preserve;
9.    Find the cannons on top of the Towers and shoot a bullet – or two;
10.    Discover the history, legends and poetry of Alhambra and Al-Andalus by reading the Al-Andalus Info Points notecards (marked Al Andalus flag signs) – or some of them, at least!

I have started a Guild of Instructors in SL.  If you would like to attend one of the classes but are not available at these times, please IM or send a NC to Mishanu Khandr, shenendoah Tigerpaw, Svigermor Dharnen or me with the times that you are available, and we will work something out by special appointment.  🙂

I have also created a Guild of Instructors’ Bevin in MOULagain.  At this time, there are no plans to have lessons in the Bevin… or anywhere in MOULa.  I am, however, looking at the possibility of doing so sometime in the future.  We’ll see.  Or, as the D’ni would say, boyimet.  😉

    Not sure, Donahoo. I did change this to one page per issue, so I am not sure if that is it.
