Now and Zen

Lime is one of the original Color Sims brought on-line in June of 2003. This makes it ancient as far as Second Life history is concerned. Many builds have come and gone in these historic sims. In Blue, there is a memorial to Americana, a build that was focused on portraying American culture and heritage. Grey houses the Kazenojin (People of the Wind) who are devoted to air travel. Aqua remains a shopping center. The Color Sims are an interesting place to spend time exploring - you'll find a little bit of everything.

Like Now and Zen in Lime, for example. My friend, Pinget, sent me a land mark the other day to let me know that the area was a excellent spot for a visit. Obscuro Valkyrie has created a lovely Asian setting with charming paths and sweet bridges. It appears to be monsoon season, so take an umbrella (or an Unbrella) if you are concerned for your prim hair.

My favorite part of the build is the highly detailed sushi house where you can grab a snack and get out of the rain for a bit.

mmmm salmon skin roll

To the North, there is a luxurious bath house.

Even though Now and Zen is in close proximity to the "backup" Welcome Area in Plum which is presently in use due to current immigration levels, I didn't see another soul during my visit. It is a soothing, meditative spot.
