Great Second Life Destinations: Arruba, A German-Speaking Adult Island in a Caribbean Setting

I was attracted to this destination since the real island of Aruba in the south Caribbean is one of its more exotic destinations. The Second Life island of Arruba advertises itself as a "German speaking adult role play sim" which is an intriguing concept. What I found is a very well landscaped and designed build that makes good use of the interplay between water and land in its design.

I found the structures and ships to be well done, and found the ruined temples and archest on the sim to be particularly nice. Although no one was engaging in any adult play when i visited, I found all sorts of interesting looking bondage devices available and ready to be used. It is a great place to visit if you just want to wander around and take photographs, and is recommended.

All images were taken with the (TOR) Sunrise - Coastal 3 Windlight Sky Setting

Update: The Petrovsky Flux, One of Second Life's Greatest Art Installations, Will Not Be Closing

I first reported here earlier this month that the Petrovsky Flux, one of Second Life's greatest art installations, would be closing due to lack of resources.

Read about how additional funding and support has been found to keep this amazing art installation open at Ziki Questi and Inara Pey's blog -- in a large part due to their publicity and intervention. I want to congratulation them for a job well done.
