I decided that there were too many cool places to see in sl and not blog on those too so I started this. The first time I put out a call to the people I know for cool places to go. This was one of the first places that was offered up to me. Silvanus means of the woods and was also the name of the roman god of the forest. This was formerly Bettina Tizzy's Chakryn Forest and Treehouse. From what I understand she was not able to keep it up and for a time it looked like sl was about to loose a real treasure. Enter Kirk Nabob whose love for this amazing sim drove him to take it over and preserve it for all to enjoy. It is a beautiful forest with many nice spots to reflect on things and get away from all the craziness in any life.
The treehouse is one of the great fixtures of this place. It is huge and mostly empty but the views from here are amazing. Upstairs there is a nice place you can chill out or even play the piano, alone or with a friend.
Another great and totally unique spot that this place boast is an interactive painting where you can die like Marat in the famous painting by Jacques-Louis David. This was a project by AM Radio who by the way is responsible for many great builds and places that you will no doubt see here at sometime. He recreated this painting and put in a pose ball so that anyone can take part in that tragic scene again. When it as discovered that it was just sitting somewhere on a platform Bettina Tizzy, former owner of the forest and founder of the Not Possible in Real Life art group, decided that the forest would be a great home for this hidden masterpiece.
There is a little gully with a glowing willow and a hidden cave with glowing purple crystals. Also nestled through out the park are little places to talk and spend time with friends and loved ones. My words really cannot do this place justice. Best to come and see it for yourself. While I was at this park pondering on the pics I would have I ran into Scramp Wingtips, who had a fantastic av and was willing to pose for me.. thanks. Maybe I will see you there sometime too!! Enjoy

I stumbled upon this place one day and the people were so friendly that I decided to stick around.If you like Dancehall, Reggae, Ragga, Soca, Afrikan Music, Zouk, or Musique Africaine, then Faya Sound System is the place for you. When I was here mistigri Teatime was djing and we had a ball. I danced for hours and always have a ball when I go there. Lynna Jameson is the owner and now my friend, she has fantastic dances and always knows how to make you feel at home. If you are not in the mood to dance there is a nice area in the club to have a seat and chill with your buddies. Although the club is now open air if you prefer to be outside there is a beach area with a fire where you can spend time with someone special or you can opt to sit on the pier over looking the water. If you would like to have some cool reggae posters or other cool items there is a small shopping area for your shopping enjoyment. If you would like to be sure to stay abreast of all the fun things happening here join the Faya Sound System group.

I am a member of the Fashion Consolidated Cafe and have been for sometime. There are many in this group that have shared in some of the most notable conversations I have ever had. If you are in this group then you know what I mean!! That being said sometimes I have the opportunity to bump into or meet up with some of my Fashcon
Cafe fam. Sat morning it was a late night as it was after 1am here got the call for a flash mob at the SL5B cake. All the usual suspects were there, Curvaceous Loon and Teena Basevi just to name a couple. Fun and merriment abound. This cake was huge. See the little stuff on top? Thats not sprinkles, well not the kind you are used to... they are FashCon sprinkles. Check out these cool pictures. Also from what I understand there are many festivities associated with SL5B (second life 5th birthday) that will be going on until July 7th or if I am not mistaken. So if you have a chance should check some of them out . Here are some pictures of all this HAWTNESS, Don' Hate!!......
