Stop #26: Port Friendship on the mainland continent of Satori in the region of Thallo

A long overdue posting, as I have recently become one of the newest Bureaucrats at the BBB, but finally got a moment to take in one of the newer destinations for your BBB stamp collecting, Port Friendship in the region of Thallo on the continent of Satori.  Call it Boho!  Call it Hindu!  Call it ... well .. you can call Port Friendship a lot of things, but BORING??!  Hardly.  Check this place OUT!!!!


First off, yes indeed this place IS a port!  So for all you flyboys and flygirls out there, Port Friendship offers a VERY SHORT small aircraft runway, set at a very challenging angle of 225 degrees for landing, at an altitude of 31 meters.  It also features a very small rezz zone, where you are able to rezz very small aircraft (49 LI is the limit, with 5 minute autoreturn.)



There is also a rezz zone for boaters on the western area of the build (in the same parcel where the BBB stamp dispenser landing point is,) with easy access to open linden water, connected to all the Nautilus continent, Blake Sea and contiguous sailable water regions.  A very generous offering from a destination which caters to a variety of cultural and spiritual influences.

 

I would be remiss (and also blind as a bat, since the stamp features it strongly) if I didn't mention a great hindu mindset from this build, with it's giant statue to the god Ganesha.  Ganesh is the Hindu god of new beginnings, Success, wisdom, the removal of obstacles.  Ganesh is also the patron Hindu god of arts and sciences.  So, a perfect diety for this mix of hippie, boho, you name it.  Lots of influences here.


There's a very cool dance floor/social space which looks perfect for hosting dance parties (Port Friendship has recently played host to a number of sailing regattas, being the final port-of-call party for them.)  From one of the posters, it would appear that the folks at Port Friendship love to host music events such as their Friendship Valley Music Festival.  So if you're into that, this may be a place to keep on the radar.

Speaking of hosting music, it would appear that Port Friendship also plays host to an SL radio station called Black Cat Radio (Call-Station letters are KCBR.)  Here's their blurb:  

We are Second Life's listener supported radio! Burning across the grid with 50,000 watts of power! Hang out at the station, grab a radio, or drop us a request! Tune us in at http://usa19.fastcast4u.com:3800


There is so much more to this build, I can't even begin to catalogue it.  It looks like a thriving hippie, boho-influenced, welcoming commune of friendly people who seem intent of sharing their bounty with the community of Second Life.  From a kind've seedy hotel area to this crazy mish-mash of trailer-homes, stacked on top of each other like something out of the book Ready Player One.  There's also a few diners to get a bite to eat.


And for those of you who are the BBB stamp collectors, the stamp dispenser is right by the landing point.  But don't just "grab-and-go" with this destination, because you'd be missing out on a truly mind-blowing experience!
