|A visit to Der Keller.|
... until I met one of the prominent business owners of the 1920s Berlin Project, who gave me a guided tour of the sim. Berliners are a friendly group, and we all remember what it was like to get lost, to not know anyone, and especially how confusing things can be if you are new to SL in general. I've given my share of tours to new arrivals as well; it's just part of the etiquette in Berlin. I have to say that it took many, many visits to totally figure out where things were, but I did get a good start. I was guided past the church, into the bakery, down alleys, up side streets, past the barracks, across from the movie theater, around the corner from a somewhat mysterious place called the "Eldorado"... and I was introduced to the heart of the sim: Der Keller.
|Der Keller is a neighborhood Bierstube where regulars gather|
in the evenings after work -- if you have work -- for drinking, dancing,
gossiping, conversation, the occastional political argument...
*Second Life is based in San Francisco, so the times there (known as Second Life Time, or SLT) is set at whatever time it is on the west coast of the United States. For me, this means "Happy Hour" begins at the very convenient time of 5pm Eastern.
