It all started when I was at a small shop called Hume Gyaru Couture (SLurl), where I was looking around and biting the huge cupcake for some gifts. (Every girl gets hungry). After some sugar rush and a few winnings I decided to see what was outside the store. (Go to the balcony upstairs and teleport where it says: "outside").
First I walked a long way right. Saw some beautiful houses, some playgrounds, a park. Then there was the magic mushroom house and suddenly a very official looking headquarters building for Helix. Not sure what that is. I tried to look around a bit by flying, but made a mistake with landing, and ended up at the bottom of the sea. AGAIN. How many times does a person have to end up in the bottom of a large body of water, before she learns to look more carefully that she is on top of land, not just close by? Haha.
To get up I had to teleport, so I decided to start again from the shop. This time I started walking left. There was a very odd mix of buildings, way stranger even than the Mushroom house. For some reason you can find a wedding store anywhere on SL. And here there were several, their houses were beautiful. They stood out among the less attractive neighboring buildings. Just saying. For example, why is there a space station in the middle of the town? From one wedding stores upstair window you can see the entrance to a store that sells medical equipment. I am not sure why that was such a surprise to me, people really do EVERYTHING on SL. A way more peculiar sight were the items intended for Tinies among the human items in several stores.
Walking along, I saw some more odd pairings of buildings. A chinese house next to a religious building, a clubhouse built in a huge tree, a compound of some cult apparently, a circus or a fun park, I am not sure, next to a bright white hall for poets. After taking some wrong turns and walking on some rooftops I decided to check one more building. It was in three levels. In the bottom there was nothing but an empty hall. In the middle was a store next to a fountain, with some random things. But I decided that I liked this place, based on the Douglas Adams themed towel I found!
Now on the top of the building I found something really lovely. A place for relaxing. The moon was bright, the sea water glimmering and my moment of rest very peaceful indeed.

|This explorer sometimes finds herself at the bottom of a sea. They are great places for picture backgrounds, btw.|
|And naturally: a space station?|
|Love ER? This store is for you.|

|A house with a fountain must be a happy one.|
|One with a meditation garden on the roof is amazing.|
