By a very circuitous route this morning, I happened upon an inworld directory of locations called the Community Cultural Hub↑.
Administered by two representatives of the Virginia Society for Technology in Education, this is a “resource directory of ethnic, cultural and historical communities for use by educators”. Nothing says we can’t use it though. :)
The Directory provides links to communities which pride themselves on “cohesiveness in culture, tradition, ritual, (and) values”. They are arranged by categories such as Spiritual and The Arts. You can have your Community added as well.
I chose to visit one I hadn’t heard of before, Little Yoshiwara↑, a town in the Japanese Meiji period. This is a gorgeous sim populated by friendly and beautifully dressed residents.
I heartily recommend both locations!

My schedule dictated that today’s explorations would have to be short, but I did want to go visit The Lefevre Mansion↑. The Mansion and park occupy two sims and have been designed/constructed by Kaya Angel, well known for her own jewel The Rose Theatre↑.
The inside of this building is everything it should be; luxurious, opulent, gorgeous, and romantic. I fell in love with these lamps. :)
You can find out much more about The Lefevre Mansion (with videos) on their website↑, including information for those wishing for a truly spectacular location for a wedding.
Once you’ve poked around in all the stunning corners inside, go explore the grounds and the park with its buildings next door. This is a lovely new addition to the grid!

I have envy. There, I’ve admitted the truth and, although some shame exists, there’s not much I can do about it.
There are a great number of Second Life artists I wish I could be when I grow up – Cica Ghost↑ is one of them. I wish I had her talent and textures. :)
Cica’s latest work, Little Village↑, officially opens today at noon SLT. She has raised the bar for “cute” without diabetes-inducing saccharine sweetness.
Put this wobbly, wonky little town on your itinerary – it’s a delightful escape from whatever ails you!
