The Great Virtual China Wall

I recently visited the great wall of China in Second Life, on the Mao sim. This is a fabulous build, and I also discovered that there were some Belgians involved in this project!

In fact, Amiryu Hosoi has also her shoulders under other projects, such as the Hosoi Ichiba. Hosoi Ichiba is an Asian-themed market surrounding a meditation garden located on a traditional Asian-themed island called Virgin Island in the Second Life virtual World . For sale are Japanese and Chinese antiques, furniture, artwork, and other interior decorating elements, together with buildings and building components that can be used to create an authentic Asian environment. I have not visited this sim yet, but it will be one of my next stops for sure, but you can already visit their blog.

I also met Nani Yifu at the wall, and she was so kind to invite Gwendolyn, who was with me at that time, for a trip on her flying carpet around the sim.

I really admire these people for their skills, as the result may be seen!

As usual, you can see more pictures of this beautiful sim on my flickr stream, but also in the flickr group of Hosoi Ichiba.

We, as photographers, are always looking for beautiful spots to make snapshots, so, as Silvy said, it is an excellent hangout for us..;)
Keep up the good work, and thanks for adding me to your blog.
