Just a few more days to go!

Have you seen the movie “Out of Africa” with Meryl Streep and Robert Redford? Do you know who Karen Blixen is? Maybe yes, maybe no – I will tell you anyway: Karen Blixen is a Danish writer who spent almost 17 years of her life in Kenya and her book “Out of Africa” has been produced as film in Hollywood and has won Oscar awards.

When I saw the new releases from Casa del Shai: Birdwatcher safari suit and Sambia swimsuit, I suddenly knew what I would like blog about. I have a very good reason to do that, since I am Danish myself and I’ve lived in Africa for more than 4 years, I have visited the house of Karen and I took the train from Nairobi to Mombasa – exactly the same route as Karen’s in 1914, when she arrived in Mombasa’s habour and entered Africa for the first time.

The Birdwatcher safari suit is so comfortable and the texture awesome. The are 2 version of pants – one is long, suitable for the nights, when mosquitos are a plaque and the shorts version is very good for the hot African sun. Together with the suit, I recommend Maitreya Female desert boots in green or even in beige – forget about high heels when you are on a safari.

The swimsuit is beautifully layered and textured, you will look sophisticated with this on a safari when it’s time to cool down near a waterhole – aww… beware of the crocodiles…

And did you know that there is a wonderful sim called “Africa” in Second Life? If not, then please take a look —> Africa. There is a whole area with African animals, waterfalls, waterholes, birds and an awesome beach. When you arrive, you will see signboards in the center with information on how you can help children in Africa, events and much more. “Africa” arrange live music concert regularly and from the center you can teleport to the upper level, which is filled with a huge gallery with exhibitions of photography, sculpties and paintings from RL artists. From every purchase of each artwork, 50 % of the sales go to charity and keeping up the sim. I have also some of my photos there, do not hestitate to take a look.

In-world location for the infocenter —-> Africa, for the exhibitions —–> Africa and for the live music performances —–> Africa
