Ocho Tango

I pulled up Honour McMillan's blog the other day (which I do every day)—Honour's Post Menopausal View (of Second Life)—and there were some lovely images of Ocho Tango, which had been on my list of places to visit for a long time. I gather that it had temporarily disappeared and has been rebuilt, and that's a good thing because it's a serene and delightful place. Its centerpiece, not shown in these images (as usual, click to zoom in, and I'll post more on my flickr stream), is the Ocho Club, a dance hall with a distinctive exterior, and I hope to get back when a crowd is there (dancing tangos no doubt).

Surrounding the club on all sides are the pampas, where the fertile fields produce tall grasses through which you'll discover a number of paths and this and that. If you'd prefer, there's a bicycle rezzer. And if you're in the mood to dance outside, there's a little area for that as well, shadowed by the towering power lines that cut across the plains. (Somehow, here in Second Life these power lines look evocatively romantic and appealing.) Way overhead all of this is the shop DaD Design, where you can find things for home and garden, including some lovely tropical trees.
