Picks for the day!

My first pick of the day would have to be Nantucket.

As you can see in the picture. Dembe is standing by the performance arena. Here you can listen to live concerts by real musicians, go into the barn and learn to dance such dances as the Tango, Salsa or just plain slow dancing. Unfortunately, in the barn there is also slot machines and other casino type machines that you can throw away your hard earned Linden on.

Everyone here is so nice and polite. If you walk through the barn you come to a beautiful marina on Nantucket. This is a wonderful place to just sit and relax. In addition to polite people, music, concerts, dancing and of course the beautiful marina, there are other things on the island. There are shops to explore, historic houses that are replicas of the originals on Nantucket. Oh, and how could I possibly forget - there is a fabulous money tree on this island behind the barn. You can pick up to $25.00 Lindens off the tree. Lindens grow on the tree in 1, 5, 10 and 20 Linden amounts. Once you pick $25.00 Lindens, you have to wait to pick more till after your name rolls off the screen. This gives others a chance to pick Lindens as well. Remember to be polite at this tree and not snatch Lindens from others. Other close places include a quick Teleport to Martha's Vineyard which has a variety of houses to explore. Overall, Nantucket is a nice place. On a scale of 0-5, 5 being the best, I would have to give Nantucket a 4.

My next adventure for the day was to a location called Serengeti.

This is the home of the Zanzibar Shopping Mall and Peace Beyond Passion Park. It is a very beautiful island. There is lots of shopping and a beautiful waterfall in a jungle type setting. They call this an island for lovers, a place to get away. Most people here seem to type in Spanish. It is not very educational, but a nice relaxing experience and not a lot of traffic. It also has Jet Skis for rent, $1.00 Linden per person.

Below you can see a picture of Dembe at the Falls in Peace Beyond Passion Park. There really is no educational context to this location, however it is very beautiful.

There is shopping and the possibility to practice your Spanish with other residents at this location. On a scale of 0-5, 5 being the best, I would have to give Serengeti a 3.
