Near the center of the Forest of Rubi, looking back on the blue Victorian house.
My friend Flynn’s digs in Tyta, on the north side of the forest. And I also use to “live” in Tyta for a spell, back in 2008. My property was just on the other side of Flynn’s from this direction.
Just turning around in Baker’s tracks, here’s more land I use to rent or own, to the right and next to the Great Wall. Now there’s what appears to be a giant, transparent castle on the parcel; the land is still for sale, and at 15.4 lindens per square meter it can be yours, hehe.
I also noticed that the giant 28x28x28 borg cube that use to be just across the Linden road from my land here is now gone. I feature it, for example, in my “Dueling Borg Cubes? Yes!” post from last year, where you can also find some interesting pictures of my own property at the time. Seems not much has changed — on the Rubi property now, you find the same Slum Econo Apt. building, a Victorian house, a single pool, and then one small hill on the property (but I still like my new Rubi property better for other reasons).
Southern terminus of the Great Linden Wall of the Heterocera continent. My old land is directly to the right again.
I couldn’t resist taking a peek inside the ol’ Wall again. Baker couldn’t resist, I mean.
But I sent Baker back onto the road quite soon. Still biking east on the road bordering the Rubi Forest to its north, he soon comes across this small gallery in Minoa called “‘The Gallery’ and Moveable Art by Etta”. He remembers it from previous explorations, with not much seemingly changed about it in the meantime. He recalls the Lennon images being there before as well.
Several sims west in Oslar. Baker enounters a more surreal setting. Ah yes, land on both sides of the road here are owned by “*The Realm of Mythos*” group, whose triple headed owner includes one of Baker’s immediate neighbors in Rubi, Patricia Garza. Baker has likewise passed through here before and encountered art by this group at the time as well. Unlike the gallery just up the street, though, the scenery here is completely different from what it was during his previous visit. Compare here.
Speaking of that 2009 “Outwards and Upwards…” post, we also have a couple of pictures of what the parcel below looked like at the time, also a completely different affair. Before were *giant*, towering redwood like trees; now there’s what first appeared like a collapsed, one eyed alien but what Karoz now thinks may actually be a representation of an ant — hard to tell still.
