Our third session in Second Life.. a visit to the Alhambra!!!

Last Wednesday was a fun day... we visited the Alhambra in Secondlife. According to Wikipedia...

The Alhambra (Arabic: الْحَمْرَاء‎, Al-Ḥamrā' , literally "the red one"), the complete form of which was Calat Alhambra (الْقَلْعَةُ ٱلْحَمْرَاءُ, Al-Qal'at al-Ḥamrā' , "the red fortress"), is a palace and fortress complex constructed during the mid 14th century by the Moorish rulers of the Emirate of Granada in Al-Andalus, occupying a hilly terrace on the southeastern border of the city of Granada, now in the autonomous community of Andalusia, Spain.
Once the residence of the Muslim rulers of Granada and their court, the site became a Christian palace. Within the Alhambra, the Palace of Charles V was erected by Charles V, Holy Roman Emperor, in 1527. After being allowed to fall into disrepair, the Alhambra was "rediscovered" in the 19th century. It is now one of Spain's major tourist attractions and exhibits the country's most famous Islamic architecture, together with Christian 16th-century and later interventions in buildings and gardens.
These are some photos we have taken of our trips in second life.....

The Wallflowers - Heroes

This video was shared by Freddy Espina... this is his blog... http://fredyspina.blogspot.com/


I, I wish you could swim
Like the dolphins, like dolphins can swim
Though nothing, nothing will keep us together
We can beat them, for ever and ever.

We can be Heroes, just for one day.

I, I will be king
And you, you will be queen
Though nothing, nothing will drive them away
We can be Heroes, just for one day
We can be us, just for one day

I, I remember standing, by the wall
And the guns, shot above our heads
And we kissed, as though nothing could fall
And the shame, was on the other side
Oh we can beat them, for ever and ever

Then we could be Heroes, just for one day

We can be Heroes
We can be Heroes
We can be Heroes
We can be Heroes
Just for one day

Ayiesha Woods 'Never'

This sog was shared by Maybe Gutierrez from level 1 S112. Hope you enjoy it, too!! You can visit her blog: Life in Pink... go there and leave a hello to her in the comment area...


You've been told so many times before that love will give up on you
Cause it has never been the kind of door that you could just walk through
And now you're so afraid and so unsure that love will fill your life
But don't believe the lie cause…

(Chorus:)
Not even for a minute
One day you will believe it
Cause I'm here and I will never give up on you
Let my love start to fill it
Let your heart start to feel it
I will never give up on you

Let me ask a simple question
What are you looking for?
Peace of mind, joy inside
Or is it something more?
Cause everything you need is waiting at the door
What are you waiting for?
You don't have to search no more cause...

I will be the one to be real with you
Cause I'm here for you
Always and forever
And I will be the one to hold your hand
I'm that kind of friend
And I will never leave, no…

Have you seen the movie Avatar?

Wel, I saw it.. and thought it was excellent.... I think that's a no so distant future... Secondlife is proof of that... But let's read a little about the movie. I took this from Wikipedia:
Avatar is a 2009 American science fiction epic film written and directed by James Cameron and starring Sam Worthington, Zoe Saldana, Sigourney Weaver, Michelle Rodriguez and Stephen Lang. The film is set in the year 2154, when humans are mining a precious mineral called unobtanium on the lush moon Pandora in the Alpha Centauri star system.[5] The expansion of the mining colony threatens the continued existence of a local tribe of Na'vi—a sentient humanoid species which is indigenous to Pandora. The film's title refers to the genetically engineered Na'vi bodies used by several human characters to interact with the natives of Pandora.[6]



Official Avatar Movie

Now, what do you think of the movie? Who are the heroes in the movie? do you have an avatar?
