I've recently joined a very fun group...
Thess's Mannequins Travel Second Life.. they try to find unique, gorgeous or totally wicked places and will stay there for a while.. could be 3 days.. or 1 hour.. all depends on the mood of the Mannequins.
new citizens area - sorry cannot recommend this area at all! I saw this recommended on the SLED list, so I tried it out. While there i was propositioned by vampires, land rentals, and sex sluts. I also was nearly run over by someone learning how to ride a simboard in the courtyard.

* ESHI - A DB Bailey and Eshi Otawara collaboration for the Stanford Libraries at Locus *
Designed by DB Bailey, this exhibition features fabric samples from traditional Japanese kimonos that date back to the late 1800's, combined with selections from Eshi Otawara's stellar Winter-Spring Collection that incorporates elements born of spring, power, strength, and light from within, while embracing softness, curves, blossoms, and lightness. Importantly, there are symbols from Japan within her collection, from airy blooms to powerful petals, all with a wonderful blend of coloration, patterns, and contrasts.
The fabrics belong to the prized collection held by the Stanford University Library. The full collection can be viewed at the Stanford site: http://slurl.com/secondlife/Stanford%20University%20Libraries/131/137/133
